Dear Group:
Since many of you on this list are professors or high school teachers, do
you still encounter opposition from African-Americans regarding Huck Finn?
Have you ever had a student adamantly refuse to read it?  When I was in
college, a class member actually refused to read "A Raisin in the Sun",
stating it was too stereotypical of blacks and would not believe it was
written by a black woman.
If this is too sensitive an issue to be broached, I shan't bring it up
again.
