"fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others." - Philippians 2:2-4

Double sweet, a double helping of books at Cafe de Leche in Eagle Rock with To Kill a Mockingbird and The Jungle. #bookfairiesworldwide #ibelieveinbookfairies #bookfairiesla #bookfairiescalifornia #bookfairiesusa #bannedbookfairies #tokillamockingbird #thejungle #cafedeleche #harperlee #uptonsinclair The Jungle by Upton Sinclair may be a bit gut-churning, but it is also part of the start in a revolution in food safety and cleanliness. If that's not enough to get you pumped, this book was banned in 4 countries: Yugoslavia, E. Germany, South Korea (yeah, the Southern Korea!) and even Boston in the United States (the birthplace of the American Revolution). The Jungle was rejected by many publishers, even those who had easily agreed to publish other works by Sinclair, and was deemed too shocking. Although centered around the meat packing industry and all it's horrors, the novel is also a strong indictment against the corruption of powerful corporations and sought to show the exploitation of immigrants and the working poor. Published in a series in 1906. The Federal Meat Inspection Act was passed just one year later!
Many of us are familiar with Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, but it may come as a surprise (or maybe not) that the book is still considered one of the top banned books today. Detractors have claimed the book is both racially and sexually charged. A criticism that notedly omits the important context of the racism and sexual content described. Others have argued that the story supports "white supremacy" and "institutionalized racism". This coming of age story describes the slow leaching of innocence in a young girl's life as she learns of the entrenched racism of her community and the dark actions it causes.
Both books are listed within the top 100 banned books that helped shape America. - #regrann
