The BPHS English Language Arts department and S.T.A.N.D. welcome you to be part of a local ongoing event.

Every year in February, the National Council of Teachers of English sponsor a country-wide program called “African American Read-In.”

This year due to the circumstances, the “Read-In” is online. As such, BPHS is dubbing it a “Read-Out.”

Anyone in the BPHS community–students, faculty, administrators, and parents– is welcome to select a text including poems, excerpts from speeches, etc. from this list or another.

After some practice and when ready, head over to Flipgrid and record your recitation/performance. Note that if you do not have a bphawks account, you will need to use the password readout21.

Please join this year’s celebration of African American literature and music, including such authors as Angelou, Wilson, Baldwin, King, and Hughes, plus original works by students as well.
