County board bans ‘Invisible Man’ from school libraries

“Invisible Man” by Ralph Ellison is banned from the shelves of Randolph County Schools libraries.By a 5-2 margin, the Randolph County Board of Education voted Monday night, at its regular meeting held at Eastern Randolph High School, to remove all copies of the book from school libraries.The action stems from a Randleman High School parent’s complaint about the book. Committees at both the school and district levels recommended it not be removed.” (via Courier Tribune, Asheboro)
