Mark your calendars now for the African American Read-In: Celebrating the Work of Toni Morrison.
African American Studies and English are co-hosting an “African American Read-In” in celebration of Black History Month and Toni Morrison’s 89th birthday. The “Read-In” is an event focused on raising awareness and celebrating the African American literary tradition. Created by the National Council of Teachers of English in 1990, Read Ins are held every year in February across the world. Faculty, staff, students, and the public are invited to join AAST and ENGL to read aloud (often dramatically) from their favorite African American writers. The goal is to spend several hours reading,sharing, and celebrating writers of African descent! Our focus will be on celebrating the work Toni Morrison, who transitioned in August 2019.
