Freedom Writer - April 1994 [ref001] TVC yanks short story from English curriculum In mid-February, California state education officials removed a short story by Pulitzer Prize-winning author Alice Walker from a statewide English test after Lou Sheldon's Traditional Values Coalition complained it was "anti-religious." Walker's seven-page story "Roselily" is about the Mississippi wedding of a mother who questions marriage and religion. Acting state school superintendent Dave Dawson refused to comment on the decision, but Lou's wife Beverly was elated. "We're pleased and we're wondering what other stories might be in there," she said.
