Students against banning books in NKC disctrict
The Northland Parent Association is working to remove books from school libraries that have been reported to contain inappropriate content for students, under the justification, it contains sexual or violent content. However, all of the books they have targeted have a clear bias toward people of color, women, or LGBTQIA+ people. School boards across the northland such as North Kansas City Schools and liberty are now removing the books the NPA have brought to their attention,
Some of the books they are trying to ban or have already removed from the library include:
Anger is a Gift, Blended, Lily & Dunkin, Monday’s Not Coming, The Hate U Give, This One Summer - graphic novel, Trans Mission: My Quest to a Beard, #MurderTrending, All Boys Aren’t Blue, Black Girl Unlimited, Breathless, Crank, Dead End, Fences: a play, Flamer, Fun Home- A Family Tragicomic, Gender Queer, Heavy, Lawn Boy, Living Dead Girl, Looking for Alaska, Out of Darkness, The 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives, The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, The Bluest Eyes, the girl who fell from the sky, The Handmaid’s Tale, The Haters, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Testaments (The Handmaid’s Tale 2), This book is gay.
Watch the NPA at NKC school district, watch the NPA at liberty, read an article from Kansas City Star, read an article from North Kansas City High School's news site, show up at a district board meeting: tell them about the opposition that exists. Our voices cannot be silenced. DON'T BAN OUR BOOKS!
