"It is IMPORTANT for ALL OF US TO SEE OURSELVES in books"
Every year, hundreds of celebrations of the African American Read-In take place across the country and around the world. These events feature the texts, talks, and discussions by and about African American authors and serve as a way to recognize and amplify their work (source).
