African-American Read In - "Reading Fortune - A Voice for the Ages."  The T. Thomas Fortune Foundation presents “Reading Fortune: A Voice for the Ages,” on Wednesday February 21, in conjunction with the Red Bank Public Library, as part of the 2018 African American Read-In, in honor of Black History Month. The doors will open at 6 p.m. for a meet and greet reception, with the presentation starting at 7 p.m. Fortune’s notable rise as an African-American journalist, during the 19th and 20th Centuries, and as a social justice trailblazer, will be brought to life through his poetry, prose, letters, excerpts of speeches and editorials. Community members, along with youth from the New Jersey Orators will present the works of Fortune, such as letters corresponding with President Theodore Roosevelt and the African American leader, Booker T. Washington, and other writings that profoundly relate to the cultural attitudes, citizenry and resistance of “We the People,” Today! The Red Bank Public Library is located at 84 W. Front Street.
