Tallahassee, FL - A Tallahassee school is making the celebration of African American literature a part of its Black History Month activities.
Community members read books in classrooms Monday at Springwood Elementary School.
It was for the National African-American Read-In.
Administrators say it not only exposes kids to literature written by African Americans; but it also allows students to see local black leaders reading.
This is Josh Johnson's third year participating. He says, "The kids are very excited and enthusiastic about it. I'm surprised at some of the questions that I get. I had a first grade class and the questions were very astute. So, I'm glad that not only did they take an interest in it, they take actually respond to it well."
WCTV's Lanetra Bennett and Shonda Knight participated in the read-in.
This is the eighth year that Springwood has held the event.
