This Read-in is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. Established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of African American History Month, this initiative has reached more than 6 million participants around the world.
What is a Read-In? Read-Ins can be as simple as bringing together friends to share a book or as elaborate as arranging public readings and media presentations that feature professional African American writers.
Our Read-In will be followed by a performance of “Harriet Tubman,” a one-woman show by masterful storyteller, Miz Rosie.
