1000blackgirlbooks by marley dias

    Marley Dias is a young activist and feminist who launched the #1000BlackGirlBooks when she was in sixth grade, a campaign set out to donate 1,000 books that feature black girls as main characters in 2015. Since then, she has collected over 11,000 books! She is an editor of the #MarleyMag. She also became an author, as well as the youngest person on Forbes’ 30 under 30 list for its 2018 class. Her own book (MARLEY DIAS GETS IT DONE: AND SO YOU CAN) will be published in this year 2018, in a few weeks from the date of publishing of this post to be precise! At  12 years old, she already signed a deal with Scholastic to publish her own book about social justice and activism.

    

Marley’s work has led her to many places, including the White house, where she spoke at the United State of Women Summit alongside Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey. She has also been featured on the WS Chronicle Newspaper and The InStyle Magazine which says “This Girl Could Be President in 30 Years!”
