African American Read In

On Saturday afternoon, I attended the African American Read In that was held at The Majestic. I believe that this was the ninth Read In held in Dallas, and I have been ask on several occassions to attend but always had other plans. This year was different and I am so glad that I had the opportunity to experience the event.

There were saxophonist,flutist,story tellers, dancers and singers, and they were all working from the theme "Read,Believe,Achieve." The highlight was author, illustrator and storyteller, Ashley Bryan. He was an absolute delight.

Carla Ranger of Dallas County Community College District did a fabulous job.
