"Celebrate literature during Black History Month with a Read-In at the State Capitol! Hear the words and experiences of African Americans echo through a structure built by African Americans for whom it was illegal to read.
Excerpts by authors, musicians, poets, scholars, orators, and more, will be read during the Read-In. This year's theme is "Inspirations of Sound" and will feature musically based readings! This event is FREE and open to the public.
This event is presented by the NC African American Heritage Commission, in partnership with the State Capitol State Historic Site and the State Library of North Carolina."
