The Hate U Give


The Hate U Give


Angie Thomas

Why was it banned?

A novel about racial identity and justice, as well as one that directly tackles police violence against POC, the Hate U Give was controversial even before its release. A number of school districts, most notable the Texan Katy School District, challenged the book on grounds of vulgarity and violence, but many suspect these challenges were a way to avoid explicitly banning a book for supporting Black Lives Matter.
