Powell, Deidre D.
Journal of Negro Education, v78 n4 p441-456 Fall 2009
This article revisits the first "Successful Challenge of Eliminating the Required High School Reading of A Racist Novel" and then directs the discussion to this second article because the same novel had crept back into the school system eleven years later. Sample letters and correspondence to school board administrators are provided in addition to details of what to look for when high school reading material is compromised with racism and insensitivity. Also included is a list of award-winning Black publications from which parents and educators can chose.
