We are excited for our 3rd year of The National African American Read-InFluencers! It is the first ever live-streamed virtual National African American Read InFluencer event! Right here on our YouTube channel!
The National African American Read-In is the nation’s oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. It was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month.
The African American Read-In was started specifically to create a bigger audience for African American authors of books, speeches, poems and spoken word.
Our organization, The Black and Latino Coalition, home to the Mighty Young Techs™ is a 501c3 non-profit created and unified by a common interest in empowering, revitalizing, and securing our communities, particularly of Black and Latino cultures.
