Banned Books 2016 – Art History: Eighteenth to Twenty-First Century Art

Marshall University does not ban books! The information is provided to let people know what has been banned/challenged elsewhere.


Challenged, but retained at the Williamson County (TN) schools despite concerns from citizens who said the book was “political and too provocative.” One citizen commented that “It’s troubling to me that we can’t get a history book that puts a positive look on America. Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher aren’t even mentioned.” The book is to be used in the Art and the American Identity class, a special course that will only be available to seniors who have already taken Advanced Placement Art History at Independence High School. The class had seven students enrolled.
