Transcript of Landon Turner

Censorship -I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings, by: Maya Angelou.
This is her autobiography, it tells her life story.
This should not be banned.
One reason is because it violates the first amendment; which says nothing should be banned because it violates freedom of speech. One bad part is when Maya is raped.
Also, when her mom finds the blood-stained underwear, underneath the matress. Night is the autobiography of Elie Wiesel.
It is about his experience of the Holocaust.
One reason it is banned because of the vulgar scenes, which include the fighting and killing over bread in the cattle cars Censorship shouldn't be happening because it takes some books away from students.
For every book that is censored, there is a lesson that is not being taught. Another reason this is banned is becase it preaches hatred toward whites.
Also, because it talks about the racism that existed in the 1940's and 1950's. Night is also banned because it tells about Elie getting whipped because he walked in on the Gestapo with the Polish girl.
And because it gives us an image of him getting tortured and every other Jew it talked about. Night shouldn't be banned because it tells us what actullay happened during the Holocaust.
And it teaches us to be greatful for your family, because they can be taken in an instant. I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings shouldn' t be banned because it teaches us to not judge anyone because of skin color.
Like Night, it also teaches us to stay close to our family.
