Elementary School Takes Part in Annual African-American
Over a million readers of many ethnic groups from approximately 49 states, the West Indies and African countries will take part in this exciting event. In 1990, the first African-American Read-In-Chain was sponsored by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English. In 1991, the National Council of Teachers of English joined the sponsorship. The Read-In has been endorsed by the International Reading Association. The goal is to make the celebration of African American literacy a traditional part of Black History Month activities.
