Update on the Banning of Ralph Ellison’s The Invisible Man

Thought I’d better post an update in case not everyone has heard that the ban imposed (by a North Carolina county school board) on Ralph Ellison’s Invisble Man was rescinded at the special board meeting referred to in my previous post. For the L.A. Times’ article on the story, click here. Hurrah!

    I’m happy that they re-evaluated their bonhead move but I’m definitely let down that it happened in the first place. Thanks for the update.

      Agreed. I found some of their comments afterwards interesting. Some of the “formerly banning” members seemed to get it, but some didn’t – trying to spin it their own way like “this is how democracy is supposed to work”, etc. Well, yes, in a way, but in theory you were elected in the first place because you were considered to be able to make sound & wise decisions…

      Oh, well… on to waiting for the next attack… 🙂
