BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- In celebration of Black History Month, South Central Kentucky Community and Technical College is hosting its 4th annual African-American Read-In.

During the month of February, schools, churches, libraries, bookstores and professional organizations are being urged to make literacy an important part of Black History Month by hosting an African American Read-In.

Student, faculty and staff at the school will be reading passages from notable African American authors of our history.

The African American Read-In was established in 1990 by Dr. Jerric Scott, who had a vision to promote diversity in children's literature, encourage young people to read, and shine a spotlight on African American history.

The public is invited to join at 12:30 am Tuesday afternoon in the Building F conference room on the SKYCTC's main campus in Bowling Green.
