Conversations on Censorship: Workshop on Race (for members of the National Council of Teachers of English)
On May 13th, NCAC facilitated a workshop for NCTE members on issues of censorship related to race. Participants exchanged expertise in a peer-to-peer format, and conversations will be entirely confidential. The workshop began with an introduction by Gordon Danning from the National Coalition against Censorship (NCAC), an overview of NCAC and NCTE resources, current cases, and important information for educators dealing with issues of censorship focused on race. Participants brought their own experiences, concerns, and/or case studies to discuss all aspects of censorship cases, from planning to challenge to resolution.
