The National African American Read-In (AARI) is a groundbreaking effort to encourage communities to read together, centering books written by Black authors that elevate Black experiences. The Read-In 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. 

How can you participate? 

  • Volunteer to read aloud from one of your favorite authors or from an original piece of writing. (Please register to read by February 2.) 
  • Celebrate Black History month by listening to members of the Columbus State community read from works that hold up Black experiences 

Join us when and how you are available: 

  • In Person | February 8 | 11:30 AM – 1 PM
