The UH African American Read-In will be held on Tuesday, February 7.

The University of Houston Libraries is pleased to host the second annual African American Read-In on Tuesday, February 7, 2017 between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.

UH faculty, staff and students are invited to read their favorite poems, passages of fiction or nonfiction, lyrics, plays, or speeches written by African Americans aloud to an audience in the Elizabeth D. Rockwell Pavilion at the MD Anderson Library. Guests, classes, and organizations are encouraged to attend. Sign up to be a reader.

The event’s successful debut at UH in February 2016 drew strong engagement and interest in continuing the read-in. UH Libraries proudly joins schools, churches, bookstores, libraries and professional organizations across the country in celebration of diversity in literature with the National African American Read-In, now in its 27th year.

The African American Read-In is made possible through campus partnership between the UH Libraries, the UH Center for Diversity and Inclusion, the UH African American Studies program, and the UH Department of English.
