Today in Peace and Justice history on November 16,1928

An obscenity trial began for Radclyffe Hall's novel, "The Well of Loneliness." Great Britain banned it for its treatment of lesbianism, though it contained no explicit sexual references. U.S. court in 1929 ruled similarly, for its sympathetic portrait of homosexuality, and because it "pleads for tolerance on the part of society." http://bit.ly/TNwoB9
