GCHS African American Read-In: Readers Unite
February 19, 2021 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
GCHS Tigers proudly present the first annual AARI. This years theme is Readers Unite; across time, space, place, boundaries, we are coming together at the table to serve up #TigerExcellence through reading Black authors, sharing poetry/spoken word/RAP, music, art, dance, history, science…All from the CULTURE. Zoom talks from local authors and artists, lectures from our esteemed Dr. Rhym, poetry recitations from students, read-alouds in classrooms, inventors and contributors to science and math, excerpts and a panel discussion on Ibram X. Kendi’s Stamped from the Beginning; this event is a must hit!
