Read Africa Week 2018

Read Africa Week  is a literacy initiative of Africa Access and the Outreach Program at the Center for African Studies at Howard University. We invite teachers, librarians, parents, and concerned adults to  kick off Black History Month with great books about Africa and continue reading about Africa all year. In 2018 we are promoting the 2017  winners of the Children’s Africana Book Award.  Also recommended are additional Read Africa titles recommended by African Studies Scholars.

How can I participate?

  • Read aloud to children or introduce a book to teens. See our lists of recommended  Read Africa titles vetted by African Studies scholars.
