Aspirantes Participate in 2014 African American Read-In Day

AfricanAmericanReadInASPIRA Eugenio Maria de Hostos Youth Leadership and ASPIRA Raul Arnaldo Martinez Youth Leadership Charter School students participated in the National African American Read-In at Miami Dade College's North Campus on Monday, February 3, 2014.

As part of the 25th National African American Read-In initiative to promote literacy, Miami Dade College's (MDC) North Campus and the Center for Literature and Theatre @MDC hosted hundreds of local college, middle and high school students, who took part in a read-in at 10 a.m. Monday, Feb. 3. The read-in was held in Lehman Theatre at the Pawley Creative Arts Center and helped kick off the campus' Black History Month celebration. The event was streamed live via at to encourage participation from the community.

After the read-in, ASPIRA South students were treated to lunch by Miami Dade College North Campus adjacent the beautiful Science Complex. Students broke off into small groups led by teams of MDC professionals and students engaged in small learning communities to discuss topics presented in this year's featured book.

This year's featured book was Eight Habits of the Heart: Embracing the Values that Build Strong Communities by Clifton Taulbert. Eight Habits of the Heart is a memoir that recounts the eight lessons and "front porch wisdom" the author learned while growing up in the Mississippi Delta. Sponsored by the Black Caucus of the National Council of Teachers of English and endorsed by the International Reading Association, the annual Read-In was held simultaneously with more than one million readers from throughout the U.S., West Indies, and Africa to pay homage to African-American writers and their contributions to reading, literature and literacy.

"Reading is a cornerstone of learning, and North Campus is proud to present its African American Read-In as a permanent and active link in a national effort that enriches students," said Malou C. Harrison, president at the North Campus.

Additionally, North Campus students, administrators and faculty will conduct read-ins at elementary, middle andReadIn2014 high schools throughout February to discuss bullying, personal, civic and social responsibility and literacy to further the social and moral development of the most important human resources — children.

Principals Kenneth Feria and Jorge Trujillo of ASPIRA RAM and ASPIRA de Hostos, respectively, mentioned, "We value and support our collaboration with Miami Dade College North. This event opened the eyes of so many of our young people, who learned that reading and improving one's literacy often opens the door to understanding and success."
