When ethnic studies programs in Tucson public high schools were eliminated earlier this year, books in the curricula, including many by notable Latino writers, were pulled from classrooms. El Librotraficante (aka, Houston-based writer Tony Diaz) and members of Nuestra Palabra, Latino Writers Having Their Say, organized the Librotraficante Caravan to take the banned books back to Tucson and into the hands of those protesting the decision. The caravan left Houston on March 12 and will stop in San Antonio and El Paso en route to Tucson.
