Celebrate Banned Books Week with TIE

Listen to the latest Choice Toward Inclusive Excellence (TIE) podcast episode as Dr. Martha S. Jones joins the program to discuss her book, Vanguard: How Black Women Broke Barriers, Won the Vote, and Insisted on Equality for All.

Alexia Hudson-Ward, podcast host and editor in chief of TIE, chats with Martha about the banning of Vanguard in Lafayette, Louisiana, and, in response, the support she received from colleagues, fellow authors, and ALA. Martha details how the ordeal revealed to her the prevalence of banned publications and strengthened her resolve for allyship between librarians, curators, archivists, and educators in the battle for Civil Rights and democratized access to knowledge.
