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.

Faith Ringgold Author Study
February 1, 2021 - February 28, 2021
Our Stage II (k/1st) class at The Roeper School is celebrating the African American Read-In by focusing on author, illustrator, activist and artist, Faith Ringgold. We are exploring her picture books and artwork, while discovering the history and culture behind her thematic choices. We would love to partner with another classroom if anyone is interested!
