Banned Book Week
Huckleberry and Finn
Banning the Book - Then and Now
Surprisingly enough to those who would ban it today, “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” was also originally banned because it showed too great of a friendship between a white boy and a slave. To some defenders of the book, this proves that the novel was groundbreaking in that it shattered the stereotypes of the time. After all, writing about a white boy who befriends a slave and frees him caused such a controversy purely because it was unheard of during those times.
