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.

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.
