Video Lit: Librotraficante gets ready to smuggle banned Latino lit back into Arizona

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.
