JWE African American Read-In

February 1, 2021 - February 28, 2021

Throughout the entire month of February, local Black community members will be sharing and highlighting a text from a Black author and why it is important to them. Unfortunately, because of COVID, we cannot hold this in person, so we are having a virtual read-in by having members submit videos to be shown via Google Classroom.
