Conversations on Censorship: Workshop on Race (for members of the National Council of Teachers of English)

On April 26th, NCAC will facilitate a workshop for NCTE members on issues of censorship related to race. Participants will exchange expertise in a peer-to-peer format, and conversations will be entirely confidential. The workshop will begin with an introduction by Gordon Danning from the National Coalition against Censorship (NCAC), who will give an overview of NCAC and NCTE resources, current cases, and important information for educators dealing with issues of censorship focused on race. He will facilitate the discussion as participants bring their own experiences, concerns, and/or case studies that fit with this theme so we can discuss all aspects of censorship cases, from planning to challenge to resolution.
