Woke-Washing: Series of Unseen Dr. Seuss Sketches to Be Edited by 'Inclusive' Group of Authors and Illustrators

A series of unseen sketches drawn by Dr. Seuss will be edited by an “inclusive” group of writers and artists from “diverse racial backgrounds” before they are published for the first time.

The news — which has already spawned accusations of “woke-washing” on social media — was announced Wednesday by Dr. Seuss Enterprises, a company founded by the family of the famous children’s book author — whose real name was Theodor Seuss Geisel — after his death in 1991.

The sketches will serve as the basis for a new line of books that will be written and illustrated by the group — and follows his recent “cancellation” after six of his children’s books were yanked from publication because of alleged racist imagery.
