Reasons to ban books

 

         It seems that challenges/banning of Black books is on the upswing.  But, why?

        Charles Hannah of Third Eye Books and Lanel Jackson, Black Library Cultural Advocate at Multnomah County Library,  discuss the upsurge in challenges to current and classic Black literature.  They examine reasons for dwindling access to our most important titles.  Examples of targeted books reveal the breadth of these attacks on African American creative expression.
