2011 National African American Read-In

The Twenty-Second National African American Read-In

Sponsored by the Black Caucus of NCTE and NCTE

In February 2011, you may hold an African American
Read-In event any day of the month


Tuesday, February 1-Monday, February 28, 2011


Over the years, I’ve sponsored several African American Read-Ins in my school media center but I never, ever considered holding one online. Doret (The Happy Nappy Bookseller) is a genius! Thanks to her foresight, she, Ari (Reading in Color)  and I will be sponsoring an online African American Read-In. It’s simple! go over to Ari’s blog before Friday 21 January to help select which of six books we’ll be reading. Vote on which dates work best for you and tell us which online discussion forum works best for you. Anyone and everyone is invited to join us!

The choices are:

Tyrell by Coe Booth
A Wish After Midnight by Zetta Elliott
Yummy by G. Neri
Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves
Jumped by Rita Williams Garcia
When the Black Girl Sings by Bil Wright
