AUK Celebrates Black History Month

The American University of Kuwait (AUK) was invited by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) and the Black Caucus of NCTE to hold its second African-American read-in. The event was sponsored by the English Department and featured an overview of Black History Month, its history and development, delivered by Dr. Inas Mahfouz, Assistant Professor of English. Attending students and professors read poems and speeches written by famous African American figures such as Sojourner Truth, Phillis Wheatley, Langston Hughes, and Maya Angelou.

Black History Month is dedicated to celebrate the accomplishments of African-Americans whose contributions have influenced society in a positive way. Every year, many American institutions and professional organizations around the world seize the opportunity to promote literacy as a significant part of Black History Month.
