It’s Banned Books Week, a week to celebrate our freedom to read and remember the ceaseless presence of censorship in the US.

An official sponsor of Banned Books Week, Project Censored is releasing their next compilation of the year’s top censored storiesCensored 2014, being published on October 1st, is dedicated to the stories that ought to be top features on the nightly news, but that are missing because of media bias and self-censorship.

Check out the Project Censored Radio Show on Banned Books Week co-hosted by Mickey Huff and Dr. Peter Phillips. Mickey and Peter speak with Barbara Jones, Director of the Office for Intellectual Freedom and the Executive Director of the Freedom to Read Foundation of the American Library Association and with Michael O’Neil of the National Coalition Against Censorship.
 
The Project Censored Show airs weekly on KPFA in Berkeley (Fridays at 8 A.M.), and on WBAI in NYC.  

Project Censored, founded in 1976 by Carl Jensen at Sonoma State University, has as its principal objective the advocacy for and protection of First Amendment rights, including freedom of information. In 2008, Project Censored received the PEN/Oakland Literary Censorship Award.
