Yesterday The Paris Review Daily posted a brief history of a government-established and government funded censorship board. That government was the State of Georgia.
Read the scary story…and let it remind you that those “good ole days” were, in some respects, not so good at all.
The Paris Review Daily story includes a link to a previous retrospective look at the GLC that the Washington Post blog GovBeat recently published; the GovBeat article is based on a 2000 article in the Georgia Historical Quarterly written by Georgia State University professor Gregory Lisby.
The graphic above is from the cover of an edition of Georgia author Erskine Caldwell’s God’s Little Acre that The Paris Review Daily uses in its story.
