National African American Read In at the Calaboose African American History Museum

February 4, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm


The Dr. Skyller Walkes Library of African American Studies will be open on Saturday, February 4, 2023, so the public can come in and read books about Black history. This is a non-lending library. You can sit at Cephas House, across the street from the Calaboose,  and read books written for adults, but we also have many beautiful picture books for children. You will be asked to read at least for 20 minutes to be counted as a participant in this event. We will have student essay winners at 11:00 am reading their essays on their favorite Black author. This is a free event, and all are welcome.
