Challenged Works


Black Looks: Race and Representation

By Bell Hooks (1992)

Anti-racial book on race and race representation.




Challenges

1993—Hooks is a professor at Oberlin College (OH). She is a noted feminist and an antiracist activist. Her book was adopted for women’s studies courses at the University of Alberta, Simon Fraser University, York University, St. Mary’s University, and the University of Windsor. As a result, the first printing had sold out in Canada. A reprint of 1,500 copies from the United States was held up by Canada Customs.

Objection—Examined as possible hate literature.

Update—The books were released 24 hours later.
