The U School community will Join over a million readers as part of the Twenty-Seventh National African American Read-In in February 2016! The Read-In is sponsored by the Black Caucus of NCTE along with NCTE.


Throughout 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 and coordinating Read-Ins in their communities.


Hosting a Read-In 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.
