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.

FHS Social Justice Club/ Book Lovers Book Club
February 23, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Each year our Social Justice club collaborates with our Book Lovers club to hold a joint book club event. This year in response to Black Lives Matter, the students selected Stamped by Jason Reynolds and Ibram Kendi and Punching the Air by Yusef Salaam and Ibi Zoboi. We read the books and came together to share our favorite excerpts and thoughts on the books.
