Read Africa Week

READ AFRICA WEEK

poster2017

Read Africa Week (Feb. 1-7) 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 launching a special year-long focus on Ghana. This country-focus approach reinforces the fact that Africa is a continent not a country.

How can I participate?
