To Kill a Mockingbird

Plans to remove "To Kill a Mockingbird" from the school curriculum in Ontario.


Reasons:
- Some parents complained about the language in the book.
- Some suggested that books being used about African American people should be written by black people.

I don't think it should be removed. Its a great book.

Suggestions for replacements.
- "The book of negroes" by Lawrence Hill
- "Child of Dandelions" by Shehnaz Nanji
- "The Bite of the Mango" by Mariatu Kamara
