African American Read-In

Augustana College will be a host site for the 2020 African American Read-In, a collaboration with the Black Student Union, Office of Student Life, the Tredway Library, and the Reading/Writing Center. 

All are invited to join the celebration of African American literature by reading or stopping by from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

Genres vary widely from musical performances, to poetry slams, to favorite works by African American authors. The only stipulation is that all works must be by African American writers. 

Anyone who would like to share a presentation is encouraged to sign up.

The National African American Read-In is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. It was established in 1990 by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month.
