About Us

This blog was started with a specific purpose - to get as many video submissions as we can of people reading passages from the books that Arizona is banning, mostly Chicano history.  We believe this action is an attempt at cultural genocide and robs students in Arizona knowledge of history and literature.

Books like The House on Mango Street,  The Circuit, Like Water for Chocolate and other works are part of the large list that can't be read, talked about, cited by teachers or used in the schools.  How ridiculous is that?


Stand with us and show Arizona that this is NOT ok!  Send us a video of yourself reading a passage from a book on the list.  Tell us what you think about this, write a guest post, send us a quote or a poem - whatever you want to help tell Arizona that they can't just eradicate the culture and contributions of a whole ethnic group.
