A student complained to the head cook, who explained the employees who cooked up the menu are African American, according to The New York Times. You walk inside the dining hall only to find ribs, collard greens, and mac and cheese.

"We are extremely disappointed by this regrettable situation and apologize to the entire N.Y.U. community and communities everywhere for their insensitive and offensive actions".
In addition to fulfilling the many responsibilities that come with being a college student, Harris said she and her Black NYU peers also have to do "extra work" by "teaching people how to be sensitive to us".
While the employees certainly should have been reprimanded, firing them was rather drastic.
The celebration focused on African Americans in the time of war.
