African-American Read-In Chain
In 1995, the Columbus State English Department began hosting the National African-American Read-In Chain as a "kick-off" to Black History Month at the college. During the first week of February, Columbus State students, staff, faculty, and community members gather to read and share works of poetry, prose, fiction, and spoken word as part of the celebration. At its 25th anniversary, Columbus State's Read-In received an official commendation from Franklin County Treasurer Cheryl Brooks Sullivan "for hosting these important events that demonstrate the continued importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion to our community.” ABC-6 News was onsite to tape the historic moment.

The African American Read-In was founded by the Black Caucus of the National Council Teachers of English (NCTE) and the International Reading Association in recognition of the literary contributions of African American authors. Learn more about the National African American Read-In Chain.
