#BanningHistory | Author S. J. Rivera reads Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales' "Message To Aztlán"

In cooperation with Banning History, S. J. Rivera, author of "Demon in the Mirror" and "Amerikkkan Stories", reads from "Message To Aztlán" by legendary Chicano activist Rodolfo "Corky" Gonzales. Rivera chose to do this to help fight back against the censorship and book banning occurring in Arizona. Book banning is unconscionable in this day and age and everyone who values their freedom should be alarmed at what the state of Arizona is doing. Banning History's goal is to get as many video submissions as possible of people reading passages from the books that Arizona has banned - mostly Chicano history. Banning History is fighting back against the attempted cultural genocide in Arizona. No history is illegal!
