The National African-American Read In

African-American Read In

The National African American Read-In is the Nations’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. It was established in 1990 by the Black caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English to make literacy a significant part of Black History Month.

The public is invited to attend and may participate by bringing a 1-2 Minute reading from any material written by an African American.

This event is sponsored by The Friends of the Fernandina Beach Library, the Association for the Study and Preservation of African American History in Nassau County and the Nassau County Public Library System.


All programs are free and open to the public. Persons with disabilities requiring accommodations in order to participate in this program should contact the Library at 904-277-7365 or the Florida Relay Service at 1-800-955-9882 at least 5 days in advance to request accommodations.
