Here are some articles about censorship. You know the commercials "The More You Know"? I feel the same way about this issue. The more we know, the better prepared we are to combat censorship, to challenge the censors, to stop the challenges before they remove books from the hands of our students.

Ken Donelson has long been an outspoken critic of censors and censorship. Here are articles ranging over a 30 year commitment to Intellectual Freedom.

I loved Patty Campbell's columns in The Horn Book. Here are her thoughts on the censors.

This should be a nice primer. There are many more folks out there fighting the good fight, the fight that keeps access to books open for ALL readers.
