National African American Read-In Begins Next Month

The Twenty-First National African American Read-In

Sponsored by the Black Caucus of NCTE and NCTE

In February 2010, you may hold an African American 
Read-In event any day of the month
Monday, February 1-Sunday, February 28, 2010

Schools, churches, libraries, bookstores, community and professional organizations, and interested citizens are urged to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month by hosting and coordinating Read-Ins in their communities. Hosting a Read-In can be as simple as bringing together friends to share a book, or as elaborate as arranging public readings and media presentations that feature professional African American writers.

To be counted as participants, simply:

  • Select books authored by African Americans; and
  • Report your results by submitting the 2010 African American Read-In Report Card.

The Read-In has been endorsed by the International Reading Association. Over a million readers of all ethnic groups from 49 states, the West Indies, and African countries have participated. The goal is to make the celebration of African American literacy a traditional part of Black History Month activities.
