(CBS/AP) – Two American literature classics found across thousands of library shelves in the U.S. have been shelved, potentially for good, in one Virginia system.
The Accomack County Public Schools removed “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” after a parent filed a complaint for the books’ use of racial slurs, according to multiple media outlets.
Accomack County Superintendent Chris Holland says the use of both novels in the classroom and libraries has been suspended per guidelines in the county public school’s policy manual, according to the Associated Press.
A committee of a district principal, librarian, teacher, parent and others will review the complaint and make a recommendation of the books’ availability in the future.
A racial slur appears 219 times in “The Adventure Of Huckleberry Finn” and 48 times in “To Kill a Mockingbird.”
