I believe that organizations like the NCTE makes a significant contribution to the community, sponsoring events across the country where readers have access and share with others significant African American literature.
It is a good initiative that encourages multicultural tolerance among citizens. Through these events families and friends have the opportunity to get together and share culture. Additionally these kind of events promote a love for reading among youth.

Being an African-American myself, I've found that many schools only teach African-American History for a short period of time in Feb. what's being taught does not give students the appropiate knowledge one may need in order to grasp the history of the struggle African-Americans went through.
