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.

We picked poetry written by black authors that would appeal to students. Student library aides folded them into notes and we distributed them around the library. Students could pick and read a poem and write a reflection and/or favorite line on a post it to hang up on sheets. Students who participated received an African American Read In button.
