The banned librarian blog is for librarians who support social justice and activists who love their libraries.
Amy Sonnie is the ‘banned librarian.’ Her young adult anthology, Revolutionary Voices, recently joined hundreds of literary classics, children’s books and young adult favorites on American Library Association’s list of Top Ten Most Frequently Challenged Books. Her second book, Hillbilly Nationalists, Urban Race Rebels and Black Power: Community Organizing in Radical Times, traces the untold history of poor white activists working alongside the Black Panther Party and Young Lords in the 1960s.
From 2001-2007, Amy served as Associate Director of the Center for Media Justice. Today she is a writer, editor and librarian living in Northern California.
