White professor who lied that she was black, resigns

Jessica Krug has been living as a black woman for years

Jessica Krug, a white associate professorĀ at George State University has resigned after lying that she was black.

Krug worked focused on Africa and the African diaspora. She admitted in a blog post last week that she was in fact a “white Jewish” woman from Kansas City.

A tweet from the university confirmed her resignation.

In her blog post, Krug said she “built my life on a violent anti-black lie.” And described her behaviour as “the very epitome of violence, of thievery and appropriation, of the myriad ways in which non-Black people continue to use and abuse Black identities and cultures.”
