College of DuPage will join hundreds of colleges, universities, libraries and other organizations Feb. 4 during the 24th annual National African American Read-In. The free readings will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Student Resource Center, room 2000G, 425 Fawell Blvd.
Endorsed by the International Reading Association, the event includes volunteer readers presenting their favorite selections from African American books, essays and poetry collections, as well as brief biological sketches of the authors. Last year, 14 people participated from College of DuPage, and volunteers are needed for this year’s program.
The first National African American Read-In was sponsored in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English, with the NCTE offering its support and sponsorship the following year.
