Huck Finn's 'Hidden' Lessons questions the educational suitability of 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' in the classroom. The author argues that the book teaches misguided lessons about race relations. Huck Finn's 'Hidden' Lessons challenges the more typical understanding of Huck Finn and guides readers through an analysis that demonstrates how racism functions in the book and the classroom.
