Banned Books Week Spotlight: South Atlanta High School

Posted By Jonathan M. Kelley, Friday, September 27, 2013

Each day during Banned Books Week we will profile one of the seven recipients of FTRF's Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund 2013 Banned Books Week grants. Day 6 features South Atlanta School of Law and Social Justice in Georgia.

The School of Law and Social Justice is one of four small schools in the South Atlanta High School complex in Atlanta, Ga.  Their grant went to support "Danger! Black Men Reading," a series of events highlighting banned and challenged books by African American male authors, including Ralph Ellison (of Invisible Man fame), Malcolm X, and James Baldwin.

Their events included a Banned Books Week/Library Card Sign-Up Month combined event, an essay contest, Banned Books Week awards luncheon, and a virtual Read-Out.

South Atlanta has posted a number of photos on their Facebook page and created this preview video to kick the week off!
