Tucson school board lifts ban on Latino studies books – latimes.com

The works have been deemed “controversial” by some local media but are widely assigned in universities and high schools across the West. The seven reinstated books are: “Critical Race Theory” by Richard Delgado; “500 Years of Chicano History in Pictures,” edited by Elizabeth Martinez; “Message to Aztlan” by Rodolfo “Corky” Gonzales; “Chicano! The History of the Mexican American Civil Rights Movement” by Arturo Rosales; “Pedagogy of the Oppressed” by Paulo Freire; “Occupied America: A History of Chicanos” by Rodolfo Acuña; and “Rethinking Columbus: The Next 500 Years” by Bill Bigelow.
