Harris lands on list of 850 books targeted by Texas lawmaker

A Texas lawmaker running for higher office announced an investigation of school districts' books on race and sexuality — targeting a 16-page list of 850 titles. Four of them were written by Duchess Harris, a Macalester College professor.

"I couldn't feel more accomplished," Harris posted on Facebook. "You think I'm being sarcastic, but this was #lifegoals." By phone, she expressed "deep concerns" about politics shaping whether and how young people learn about U.S. history, resulting in deep gaps in knowledge that persist into college and beyond.
