Participants can come and read a favorite passage from a book, a poem, a part of a
speech, or anything written by an African American author, or participants can just
come listen to others read passages from favorite African American authors.
All across the nation, African American Read-Ins are being held to celebrate Black
History Month and to encourage literacy. The Read-In has been endorsed by the International
Reading Association. Over a million readers of all ethnic groups from the United
States, the District of Columbia, the West Indies, African countries, and more have
participated. The goal is to make the celebration of African American literacy a traditional
part of Black History Month activities.
