Banned Books Week Display on Banned Music

categories: Exhibits

Banned Music DisplayBanned Books Week is September 25-October 1. Come check out the Music Library Banned Music exhibit all week to see music-related items from our library that were banned throughout history. The reasons for their censorship vary from political themes to explicit lyrics.

Our exhibit featuring banned music is part of a nationwide event, Banned Books Week, which annually celebrates the freedom to seek and express ideas, even those some consider unorthodox or unpopular. For more information, check out http://www.bannedbooksweek.org/.
