The recent ruling in Arizona that banned ethnic studies in the state is causing Latino writers to take action since Latino literature was included in that notorious decision. Next week, a caravan leaves Houston heading to Tucson, organized by a new group calling themselves Librotraficante, to bring banned Latino literature back to Arizona. While this video explains the mission of Librotraficante, this video reveals the behind-the-scenes logistics of a trip that should not have to be made in the first place.

    House on mango street is really banned from a state ;( I read that in the 6th grade after moving from an all Hispanic community to an all Africa American community and it helped me a great deal to understand my surroundings. I’m glad that this is being done.
