Minerva Zanca

Minerva Zanca, the principal of Pan American International High School in Queens, made headlines in July for allegedly targeting several Black teachers. According to reports Zanca referred to the teachers as “gorillas” and made comments about their “big lips” and “nappy hair.” While the Department of Education is still investigating the claims, a petition demanding she be fired surfaced online.
