Arthur Miller's play examines the American Dream at its heart: the family. We talk about the author then why the play is banned and get into it a little.
1974 - Texas - Challenged at the Dallas Independent School District high school libraries
1981 - Indiana - Spring Valley Community High School English in French Lick banned the play from English classes for using the words "goddamn," "son of a bitch," and "bastard."
1987 - Kentucky - Pulaski County High School in Sinking Valley challenged it as "junk" from a required reading assignment
1997 - Illinois - Egyptian High School in Tamms challenged but retained the play as offensive because of "profanity."
