Black History Month Read-In

Event Description

Celebrate literature during Black History Month! Hear the words and experiences of African Americans echo through a structure built by African Americans for whom it was illegal to read.

A special dramatic reading honoring early African American NC lawmakers will open the event. Excerpts by authors, musicians, poets, scholars, orators, and more, will be read during the Read-In.

This event is presented by the NC African American Heritage Commission, in partnership with the State Capitol State Historic Site.
