A Copy Of Tucson’s Banned Book List | NewsTaco

People involved in the Mexican American Studies struggle in Tucson, Arizona recently compiled a list of the banned books from the district, as well as released a letter signed by many organizations expressing concern over First Amendment rights, given the Tucson Unified School District’s removal of these texts. Here is the letter and here is the list, also reproduced below.

Debbie Reese has compiled this list from the May 2, 2011 Cambium Report.
