As many of you probably know, February is Black History month, and, in the spirit of celebrating African American contributions to society and culture, the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English sponsors a nation-wide read-in of African American literature. All across the country, all month long, schools, college campuses, churches, libraries, and other community and cultural centers will host gatherings where people can come, listen, and read their favorite writing from African American authors.
The Drexel Library, too, has a history of joining in with their own hosted read-in, which will take place on Monday, February 2, at 3:30 p.m. Come join in by bringing your favorite African American writer’s work to read, or just come by to listen and reflect.
We hope to see you there!
