MCC celebrates Black History Month with African-American Read-In

February 28 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Free
African American Read-In

Muskegon Community College will host “The African American Read-In” on its campus Wednesday, February 28, from 2:30 P.M.- 3:30 P.M. in Room 1300 on the main campus located at 221 S. Quarterline Rd., Muskegon, Michigan, 49442. A public demonstration of interest in and support for the beauty and power of African American literature, the event was started by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) back in the 1980s.  It was intended to redress the short shrift given to writers (novelists, poets, playwrights) of color. Now, traditionally people come together to read aloud from a favorite piece of writing by Black authors.
