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.

Capital High School African-American Read-In 2021
March 12, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
All of my senior level dual credit English e-learners in both of my Communications 100 classes participated in the event during the first week of February. They read live (in conference time) a short introduction about a black author before sharing poetry, brief text excerpts, and children’s books. In previous years, my students went to an inner-city elementary school to read in person. Since this is not possible this year, we read aloud to each other. My co-teacher (who is delivering instruction face-to-face) was also involved.
