During Black History Month, the National Council of Teachers of English encourages organizations to participate in its annual National African American Read-in. Since the event was founded in 1990, more than six million people have participated globally. Join us from 11:45 a.m.—12:45 p.m. in the Borra Learning Center Student Commons for this shared experience.

NCMC students will celebrate the African American experience by:

  • Reading aloud excerpts from literary works and speeches
  • Introducing short film clips
  • Leading a brief discussion following each reading or film clip

Courses with participating students are:

  • COM 111 Public Speaking
  • ENG 215 Introduction to Poetry
  • HST 132 U.S. History
  • SOC 171 Introduction to Sociology

All students, staff and faculty are encouraged to participate in the discussions.

This event is sponsored by NCMC's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Committee and The National Council of Teachers of English.
