The Alabama Story, story.

A play with the title The Alabama Story is running in Sarasota Florida through May 28. The local paper has a review and the background of the play, with deals with an Alabama Senator's attempt to ban a book with racial themes:

  In 1958, the White Citizens Council in Alabama challenged the book and had it removed from Alabama public libraries because they firmly believed it represented inter-racial marriage. These segregationists thought that the picture book was purposely aimed at children to indoctrinate them into believing that marriage between black and white people was acceptable. They thought this book had the power to dangerously influence young minds.
