The 30th annual African American Heritage Month Read-In
The African American Read-In (AARI) is built on a single-minded yet confident evidence: that a university/community college and community reading event can be an effective way to promote diversity in literature, encourage young people to read, and shine a spotlight on African American authors. It provides practical approaches to celebrating literacy through African American literature in a college setting and offers numerous opportunities for teachable moments.
This years guest speaker is Antwan C. Williams, M.S., J.D a retired U.S. Army Lt. Colonel with 27 years of experience leading public affairs, public relations, communication, and human resources organizations. Currently, he is an adjunct instructor and the Manager of Communications, Community Outreach, Admissions and Recruiting for the UTA School of Social Work.
Participants will have the option to read and share literature written by African American authors/poets/playwrights. The event is sponsored by Jenkins Garrett Library, Sigma Kappa Delta (English Honor Society), the TCC-South English Department, and Student Activities.
