Minnesota author/educator Les Lester's protest of the Spike TV movie, "Tut" has gotten plenty of attention this month.
The July 26 edition of the Woodbury Bulletin newspaper published the article Lester wrote, "King Tut was black; Spike TV big whigs say, 'So what?" In it, Lester explains the reason for his protest. He says portraying King Tut, who was a black man, as having been white disenfranchises black children.
Earlier this month, on July 16, Lester discussed the issue on The Jordana Green Show on WCCO Radio. He told Jordana the use of white actors to portray King Tut and members of his court as white rather than black calls attention to the achievement gap.
Another article Lester wrote on the issue was published in the July 17 edition of MinnPost. The commentary, An open letter to Comcast concerning upcoming King "Tut" movie, was published in the July 13 issue of Insight News, and Lester was interviewed regarding the issue on KFAI Radio on July 7.
Les Lester is the author of the novel, The Awakening of Khufu, which explores a similar theme. It is the story of an ancient Egyptian pharoh from the 4th Dynasty brought back to life in present day America to set the record straight about black heritage.

Elliott Foster, author, Whispering Pines: Tales From a Northwoods Cabin, appeared at the Barnes & Noble in St. Cloud, Minn., on July 25 and The St. Cloud Times published a preview article about the event in the paper on July 19.
It is Foster's second Barnes & Noble signing of the month. He was at the Barnes & Noble in Eagan, Minn., on July 13.
Whispering Pines is a novel where four generations of the same family share their memories of time spent at the family cabin in Northern Minnesota. St. Paul Pioneer Press' books editor Mary Ann Grossman reviewed the novel in the paper on July 5. Here is a portion of her review: "Anyone who's loved a cabin is familiar with this story. There's fishing, long summer nights, hard maintenance work. And there's the story of family -- the older generation passes, younger ones take over. The pace of this 267-page story is gentle and slow, with lots of detail about everyday activities….. readers will immerse themselves in this piece of life in Minnesota. "
