The event is free and open to the public. Attendees are invited to read their own favorite poem or short passage from an African American writer or listen to the powerful words written by African Americans.   Caldwell African American students, faculty and staff are invited to share excerpts from their own creating writing.

The National African American Read-In is the nation’s 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.
