What Is It?
The YouTube video One Of The Most Banned Books Of All Time – Mollie Godfrey by the YouTube channel TED-Ed:
Here is the description for this video:
Explore why Maya Angelou’s memoir “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings” became one of the most frequently banned books of all time.
In 1998, a school district removed one of American literature’s most acclaimed works from its curriculum.
Parents pushing for the ban said the book was both “sexually explicit” and “anti-white.”
The book at the center of this debate was Maya Angelou’s “I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings.”
Why was the memoir so controversial?
Mollie Godfrey digs into one of the most banned books of all time.
