The National African American Read-In is the nation’s first and 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. This initiative has reached more than 6 million participants around the world. During the month of February, schools, churches, libraries, bookstores, community and professional organizations, and interested citizens make literacy a significant part of Black History Month by hosting an African American Read-In. It’s an opportunity to share a book, public readings or presentations that feature professional African American authors or illustrators about the African American experience.
