Every year, hundreds of celebrations of the African American Read-In take place across the country and around the world. These events feature the texts, talks, and discussions by and about African American authors and serve as a way to recognize and amplify their work.

African American Read In Celebration!
March 7, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am
On Monday, March 7th two of my senior English classes participated in the African American Read In Celebration! Several seniors read aloud excerpts from the books they chose to read. Others read their own responses about the story’s conflict to their fellow classmates. Six students read to 45 students and three teachers.
We listened and applauded their presentations!
