The twenty-eighth annual African American Read-In Chain was celebrated at Penn State Altoona February 12-13, 2017. This year's theme was Performance, recognizing the vibrant role performance has played in African American arts, literature, history, and culture.

Events began February 12 with a community gathering featuring music and literature and continued Monday with an Open Mic Read-In held in the Misciagna Family Center for Performing Arts. From 9 a.m. – 5 p.m., students, faculty, and staff offered various dance, theatre, and musical performances to celebrate African-American authors and artists. There was also a keynote presentation, "Black Acting Methods," by Sharrell Luckett, assistant professor of theatre and performance studies at Muhlenberg College. In the evening, Aurin Squire, featured author of the 2017 African American Read-In at Penn State Altoona, gave a reading of his works.
