Weigh In: African American Read In and I Am This Land

In honor of the NCTE's African American Read-In, the book blogging community has decided to pick and discuss a book during February. Doret, Edi and Ari (bookseller, librarian, avid young adult reader—great combination) narrowed it down for us to 6 YA titles by African American authors about African American teens. Vote here for the book you want us to read and discuss.

You may also vote on (and submit) videos about diversity in America created by young people at "I Am This Land," like this one about a young Muslim girl who has to stand up for herself both inside and outside her home. Which confrontation took more courage?
