When most of us think of Las Vegas, our minds shift to the incessant ring of slot machines, the glare of pulsing neon lights, the glitz and the glamour of the Vegas Strip, but tonight we celebrate the talents of students who reside in the backdrop of the revelry. So hear the call of drums, la música, festive colors, hip hop style, and talented students, as the Black and Latino Caucuses celebrate the children of Las Vegas. Spoken word poetry, mariachis, a drum line, dramatic monologues, and various dance groups, all performed by youth from Las Vegas schools. These young people will delight you and make you proud to live in our diverse world. After the performances, stay and relax with us, as we continue our celebration with a wine and cheese reception topped off with dancing and head bopping to the rhythms of a DJ. Remember, Las Vegas is a town that never sleeps! So you will still have time to go out and enjoy after this amazing evening presented collectively by the Black and Latino Caucuses for all NCTE members and guests.

African American Read-In
One of the many sponsored projects of the Black Caucus is the highly successful African American Read-In.

SCHOLARSHIPS & AWARDS

Barksdale Turner Scholarship in African American/Black Literature
The Barksdale-Turner Scholarship was established (1993) by the Black Caucus of NCTE and CCCC in recognition of Richard K. Barksdale and Darwin T. Turner, two leading scholars, critics, and teachers in the field of African American/Black Literature.  The scholarship is intended to support the continued education of an African American student who is an English major with a demonstrated interest in African American/Black literature.  The student must plan to teach.
