$1,000 Scholarship: Read a banned book by a Black author!

Save to Favorites


Banning books, an exclusionary and potentially unconstitutional practice, occurs when individuals, government officials, or even school administrators, remove books from libraries, reading lists, or even bookshelves because they object to their content, ideas, or themes.

When certain perspectives are eliminated from a student's literary repertoire, their access to inclusive and representative text is hindered. Last year, more than 1,600 books were banned in over 5,000 schools, with most bans targeting titles related to race and racism and the LGBTQIA+ community.

Read a banned book by a Black author, and share how you’ll discuss with your peers the value these books and stories have on society. By participating, you'll be entered for the opportunity to be awarded a $1,000 scholarship.
