African American Read-In Virtual Visits

To celebrate the National African American Read-In, UNCP students, faculty and staff will read in local schools each semester. This February to honor African American authors and illustrators, we will visit classrooms virtually, providing links to classrooms to visit throughout the week of February 22-26. During the Read-In, students, faculty and staff will share a book or a performance that honors African American authors and illustrators age appropriate for the audiences.
