North Wilkes High School

February 1, 2021 - February 26, 2021

Students in Mrs. Brown, Mrs. Barlow, and Ms. Dancy’s English 1 & 2 classes will spend the month of February (and probably beyond because there was too much great stuff to fit in one month!) reading and analyzing poems, short stories, and excerpts from novels written exclusively by African American and Black authors and centering on African American and Black characters.

North Wilkes High School is part of the Wilkes County School District. Wilkes County is a large, rural county in the northwest corner of North Carolina. North High is located in a predominately white area (85% of the student body identifies as white), but it has a steadily growing minority population. We just learned about the African American Read-In this year and thought our students could definitely all use a change of pace and perspective that they might not typically get. We’re really excited to participate!
