The National African American Read-In is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. It was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month. This initiative has reached more than 6 million participants around the world and continues to do so today.
Please join us for the 2018 African American Read-In as local community leaders and readers shine a spotlight on African American authors. We encourage people, young and old, to read out loud and promote diversity in literature.
