African American Read-In

Location: Reynolda House Museum of American Art

Cost: FREE

Join Reynolda as the museum observes the annual African American Read-In to celebrate the writings of Black authors. This year, readings will focus on poetry of the Harlem Renaissance in recognition of Langston Hughes’s birthday. Then, using award-winning poet Nikki Grimes’s “golden shovel” technique from her books One Last Word and Legacy, we’ll create our own poems in response.

The event is organized by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) in recognition of Black History Month.
