West Orange High School African American Read-In
February 23, 2022 @ 7:30 am - 2:30 pm
This will be the 5th Annual African American Read-In sponsored by the West Orange High School Library Media Center. For three days, classes will come to the LMC, and students and faculty are invited to share readings from Black writers, poets, and playwrights. Choirs will sing, drama classes will act, dancers will dance. All in all, it is a celebration of all the rich contributions African American peoples have made to our culture.
