African American Read-in
The African American Read-In is an initiative that started in 1990 from the National Council of Teachers of English. It is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. The initial and continued goal of the African American Read-In is to promote diversity in literature, encourage young people to read, and spotlight African American authors. Dallas ISD is proud to have hosted the African American Read-In for decades!
