WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — The Black Cultural Center Library will host the annual African American Read-In at 5 p.m. on Feb. 20 at the BCC.

An African American Read-In is a celebration of literary works written by black authors. Founded by Jerrie Scott 25 years ago as a literary initiative of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), a read-in is an opportunity to educate about the contributions of black writers and to promote literacy within the community.

The event is open to the public and refreshments will be provided. Those interested in reading a literary piece should contact Jamillah R. Gabriel, BCC Librarian, at
