African American Read-In: Honoring Harry Belafonte

February 3 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Saturday, February 3  |  1:00pm – 3:00pm  |  Free

This historic program celebrates Black voices through poems, essays, short stories, and children’s books by African American authors. Volunteer readers of all ages select and lend their voices to works that inspire, challenge, and reflect upon the Black experience in the United States. This year we honor the memory and impact of Harry Belafonte who devoted his life to the civil rights movement. He used his talented voice to not only popularize calypso music but call for justice and equality for Black people.

2024 is the 35th year of the National African American Read-In, an event sponsored by the National Council of Teachers of English and its Black Caucus. Each year communities across the country are urged to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month.
