Black Men Read

Black Men Read

On Tuesday, February 28, Black male leaders will bring words to life for our youngest readers as part of Black Men Read. Taking place at 34 schools across the District, Black Men Read aims to encourage a love of reading for our students while also countering negative narratives related to Black men. As part of Black Men Read, leaders from across the city will read to students in grades K-2 on Tuesday, February 28, from 9:30 – 11:00 AM, demonstrating that Black men care about the outcomes and experiences of Pittsburgh’s children.
