African American Read-In Monday Marathon

Titelman Study, Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts, Penn State Altoona

The annual African American Read-In at Penn State Altoona will take place Feb. 16–17. This year’s theme is "Black Theatre through a Black Lens," celebrating the African American dramatic literary tradition — its themes, forms and playwrights — from slavery through the first two decades of the 21st century. 

The Read-In continues Monday, Feb. 17, with the “Monday Marathon,” an open-mic read-in held in the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. From 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., various presentations, readings and performances will take place to celebrate African American plays and playwrights. The Penn State Altoona and Blair County communities are invited to drop in any time throughout the day to participate and/or listen and enjoy

All events are free and open to the public and sponsored by the African American Read-In at Penn State Altoona, with additional support from the Blair County NAACP.
