Take a stand against censorship

This year marks the 30th anniversary of the Banned Book Week campaign against censorship in America. The folks at Bookmans Entertainment Exchange in Arizona have continued their three decade-long commitment to the cause with a compelling video (see below). The six store chain, with shops in Tucson, Phoenix, Flagstaff and Mesa, sells books, magazines, comics, music, video games and movies. But a cornerstone of the company’s philosophy has always been its fight against censorship and promotion of freedom of expression. Each September Bookmans renews its “Fight Censorship” campaign to raise awareness about the dangers of censorship.
