Toni Morrison at the Free Speech Leadership Council

Last month a high school in Shelby, Michigan ordered an English teacher to stop teaching students about Toni Morrison’s novel, “Song of Solomon.”

Yesterday, Morrison helped the National Coalition Against Censorship launch the Free Speech Leadership Council, a collection of community leaders working together to combat censorship around the country.

At the event, Morrison spoke to Fran Leibowitz about growing up with censorship. For a video of the even and for background on the Michigan incident and the Free Speech Leadership Council, see
