The New York Times reported in January that “a fast-growing network of conservative groups is fueling a surge in book bans.” Why is this happening? What books are being challenged most today? Which groups are being targeted? We will explore these questions and examine how banning books affects children, education, politics and culture. Finally, we will look at how book banning threatens to undermine multiracial democracy.

July 11, 18, 25 and August 1. 9:30-11:30 am EDT

Instructor: Josh Frank

Equity Intersection is an equity and justice education non-profit. We offer adult education courses on all elements of equity, including disability. We believe education is action. Our courses address race, gender and LGBTQ+ status. A unique feature of Equity Intersection is our focus on ableism and disability justice. We believe that a focus on disability strengthens our understanding of all forms of inequity, and so builds empathy, agency and community.
