English class begins reading “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn”
Allison Krause’s 10th grade CP English class begins to read “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain. This novel raises extreme controversy over its use of the N-word over 200 times throughout the book. Some English classes in America have switched to a modified version of the book were the N-word is replaced with the word slave each time it is used. After reading the book, the class will be required to write a 4 page paper arguing whether the book promotes or condemns racism.
