In response to the photo in the Feb. 6 News, "A link in the Read-In Chain," congratulations to Paul Robeson Theatre and McKinley High School for their African-American Read-In Chain program on Feb. 5. However, contrary to the caption accompanying the photo, this was not the first local African-American Read-In program.
At least 10 separate programs, small and large, occurred on Feb. 4, such as the African-American Read-In program presented by Langston Hughes Institute and Just Buffalo Literary Center, with 20 youth and adult readers and a celebratory audience of more than 100 people.
