Choose any week in February as your Read Africa Week
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. This year 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.
