Is Huckleberry Finn still taught in high schools? It is a real shame to cancel this book, one of the greatest novels ever.
Raised by white racist admirers of Mark Twain, I prefer to think that the epiphanies of Huck Finn regarding race were not an unintended consequence. It evoked my first real visceral anger at the treatment of blacks.
It would not surprise me if it was banned (cancelled) in some regions of the US.
