Dexter Elementary Hosts African American Read-In Chain Today

Local community members and leaders will travel to Dexter Elementary School, Friday, to participate in the school's African American Read-In Chain.

Visitors will celebrate literacy and Black History Month by reading selected works, authored by African Americans, or books about notable African Americans or Africans. 
The first National African American Read In was sponsored by the Black Caucus of National Council of Teachers of English in 1990. More than a million readers of all ethnic groups from 50 states, the District of Columbia, the West Indies and other African countries have participated in such programs in the last 27 years. 

The Read-In happens from 11 a.m. - 12:20 p.m. at Dexter Elementary School, 917 S. Dexter Avenue, in Evansville.
