Native Books Banned in Tucson
Mon. 1/23 11a: Reports in the media that the Tucson Unified School District banned books by prominent Native American and Mexican authors and has discontinued its Mexican-American Studies programs spread like wildfire and prompted outrage from people all across the country.
Is this taking compliance to Arizona HB-2281 too far?
What books are on the list and no longer available for students and teachers to use in the classroom?
Guests are author and educator Simon Ortiz (Acoma), activist and author Winona LaDuke (Anishinaabe) and Cara Rene, Communications Director/TUSD.
