Our February 2016 movie night was a great success! Here are some pictures from the event.
The National African American Read-In is the nation’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. This initiative has reached more than 5.5 million participants around the world.
During the Read-In, each class will listen to a text written by an African American author or on a notable African American figure or event.
We are looking for guest readers to volunteer to read to a class. If you or someone you know is interested, please contact Kelly Lennon-Taharally at Kelly@amparkns.org as soon as possible. All volunteers are welcome!
