Strange how something can be so beautiful and so sad at the same time. Thanks for sharing this amazing photo.
This is so moving!
Hi Lori,Don't be a stranger. :-) Glad you thought enough of the selection to say so.
TereLiz expressed my exact thought. Such a beautiful but sad photo. Thank you for sharing.
thought you might want to know about "Tintin au Congo"--book under lock and key at Brooklyn library labeled, "Racially offensive to black people." You can find the New York Times article at: http://cityroom.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/19/a-librarys-approach-to-books-that-offend/
I'm no fan of censorship. And I appreciate the objection to the work. I think parents should talk about it with their kids but I don't see any compelling reason why given the content and how dated the work is that it couldn't be shelved in an adult circulation area like graphic novels. I wouldn't have it locked up in the backroom and if my child did get a hold of it, we'd discuss it.
