Black History events continue on Monday on the SUNY IT campus. A group of students added their names to a list that is projected to reach one million.

Today marks the 25th Anniversary of the African American Read-In. The goal is to recognize and appreciate African American authors from Langston Hughes to Maya Angelou. Usually only a 24-hour event, this year to commemorate its anniversary the Read-In will last the rest of February. For students participating today, the read-in was a moving experience.

"It was very important to me because it shows how dignified black woman are and can be. It also showed me how women can get up and fight for what we want, just like in the civil rights movement," says Swasiann Chambers, junior.

Dr. Mary Perrone hosted the read-in along with students from her com three hundred class in the Cayan Library on the SUNY IT campus.
