Watch live on the COD Library's YouTube Channel

Join us for this virtual event, featuring select recorded readings from COD students, faculty, and staff.

The National African American Read-In is the nation’s first and oldest event dedicated to diversity in literature. A national literacy initiative of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), the event is sponsored on campus by the College of DuPage Library.

For the last 30 years, more than a million readers from across the United States have gathered together to read the works of African American authors during AARI celebrations held in February – the COD event will feature volunteer readers from across the campus community presenting their favorite selections from African American books, essays and poetry collections, as well as brief biological sketches of the authors.
