Join us for a special reading event centering African American books and authors
Join us for a special reading event centering African American books and authors. Participants are invited to bring a short passage- no more than 5 minutes- from a book by an African American author to read aloud. The book may be from any genre but should include no material inappropriate for children under 7. If you are interested in reading, please use this form to register.
Established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English, the National African American Read-in aims to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month by encouraging communities to read together, centering African American books and authors.
