Banned Books, Part Three

Five Banned Books:
Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, and a Dream by H. G. Bissinger

Our Bodies, Ourselves by Boston Women's Health Collective
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl
The Color Purple by Alice Walker

"Even to the present day, we so often condemn books that were written to fight the very things we claim to be fighting. Mark Twain's (Samuel Clemens') Huckleberry Finn is so often cited as being racist, when it was written against slavery and racism."
-Jamey Fletcher
