From the Heartland Institute:

A group of community members gathered to protest a Virginia school district’s decision to remove two classic novels from a public school’s classrooms.

Accomack County Public Schools Superintendent Chris Holland banned The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and To Kill a Mockingbird in November 2016, following a parent’s complaint the books contain “racial slurs” and “offensive wording.”
