We are looking for volunteers to read with students during the African American Read-In!

Classrooms in schools throughout Tucson Unified will celebrate Black History Month with the African American Read-In. Teachers and volunteers will read to students from books, selections from novels, short stories, poems, and plays by African American writers and illustrators.

If you are interested in volunteering to read to students in Tucson Unified classrooms, use the form below to sign up. For more information, contact our office at 584-7500 or e-mail Jeff Sawyer at @ or Christina Chapa at

Would you like to speak at our schools during Black History Month?

In addition to readers, we're also looking for speakers! If you'd like to speak at a school, please sign up through our Black History Month Speaker Sign-Up page.

For 2021 all reading activities will take place over Zoom.
