Stop the Censorship of Huck Finn!

Next month, Alabama-based NewSouth Book's will release a censored version of Mark Twain’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn that will replace the word “nigger” with “slave” and “injun” with “Indian”.

This book is a troubling example of the whitewashing our nation's history and will do a disservice to our youth by denying them to opportunty to engage in mature conversations about race in America.

Let's tell NewSouth Books that students deserve better than a censored version of our nation's racial past, and that they should cancel the release of the censored Huck Finn.
