Banned Books Week

The focus of the program is Banned Books Week (Sept 21 – 27); first is a discussion about the importance of graphic novels as literature, and their susceptibility to being banned. Then a recent case study in book banning from Delaware, where high school administrators tried to keep a lesbian-themed novel off an honors reading list. The program concludes with a conversation with retired CIA analyst Ray McGovern, who is on a California speaking tour. Speakers: Charles Brownstein, Barbara Jones, Margery Cyr, Maddi Bacon, Susan McAnelly. Theme song: “We Want” by Junkyard Empire. This week’s break music: “Sonar” and “Simplexity,” both from the album “Sonar” by Zero One.

Broadcast from Berkeley–Hard hitting News and Public Affairs with hosts Mickey Huff and Peter Phillips of Project Censored. Producer: Anthony Fest. Engineer: Erica Bridgeman. The mission of Project Censored is to teach students and the public about the role of a free press in a free society and to tell the News that Didn’t Make the News and Why.
