Celebrating Black History month, some local college professors to time to reflect on literary works of African-Americans.
Bossier Parish Community College hosted its 2nd Annual African-American Literary Read-In.
The read-in promotes literacy, and readers across the country take part every year.
Some of the college's professors read passages from some of their favorite African-American authors and poets.
which included Maya Angelou, Langston Hughes, and believe it or not, late rapper Tupac Shakur.
"I really love Tupac's words, and when you listen to them, there's so much depth there that simply goes missing because people just assume it's gangsta noise when there's a really deep social justice to a lot of his work," says Dr. Dawn Young, professor at BPCC.
The National African-American Literary Read-In was established in 1990.
