Letters: Is book banning back?

September 27, 2013

Re "School board rescinds ban on 'Invisible Man,'" Sept. 26

What year is this again? Since when are we still trying to ban books in high schools? Sadly, this doesn't seem to be completely extinct in the South — and for a book on racism!

Did the members of the Randolph County, N.C., school board that banned and then reinstated "Invisible Man" even read this work of literary acclaim? We finally have an African American president, but some still embrace racism in this country.

If my children were students in Randolph County, I would either run for the board or move.
