WKU Libraries held its first annual African American Read-In program on the afternoon of Feburuary 4, 2008 at Java City in Helm Library. Presiding over the event was Cindy Troutman, Libraries’ Marketing Coordinator. Students, faculty and staff read their favorite piece of African-American literature, prose and poetry alike. Among the readers were Mike Binder, Dean of WKU Libraries; Lou-Ann Crouther, English Department professor; Gay Perkins, WKU Libraries’ professor; Kristi Branham, Women’s Studies instructor; and Diana McQuady, WKU Libraries’ Writer-in-Residence.
The Read-In is an opportunity for students, faculty and staff to come together and celebrate the works of African-American writers. It has been endorsed by the International Reading Association. Over a million readers of all ethnic groups from forty-nine states, the West Indies, and African countries have participated. The goal is to make the celebration of African American literacy a traditional part of Black History Month activities at WKU.
