Black History Month: Celebrating Diversity in Literature

The National African American Read-In is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. The initiative was established in 1990 by the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month, and since that time, it 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 are urged to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month by hosting an African American Read-In. Hosting an event 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. The National African American Read-In Toolkit contains resources to help plan a Read-In, including booklists and promotional materials.
