This course is no longer available.

This webinar will discuss some of the motivations behind censorship and book banning in America. We will discuss the impact of moral belief and organized thinking on efforts to remove materials from schools and public libraries, as well as historic examples of tactics being used today. We’ll also examine the difficulties in having conversations from two very drastic viewpoints and obstacles to reach a common understanding. Participants will gain a better understanding of the historic underpinnings of today’s attacks on materials related to the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC experiences.
