Badass 11-Year-Old Started a Book Drive for #1000BlackGirlBooks
Watch Marley's interview on CBS This Morning and check out some of the books she's collected below.
#tbt to the time 11-year-old Marley Dias started a movement to share books with more characters who looked like her. You rock, Marley. Just sent a few squad favorites your way -- including one by @tanibrown's mom and another by @porterbraswell. Keep at it! #jopwellrecs #1000blackgirlbooks #bethechange
Yesterday Ms. Marley D. returned to her school in New Jersey after a long & necessary #BlackGirlInspiration Tour across the nation (and Jamaica)! For those that have been living under a rock for the last 30+ days, Marley is the @grassrootsfound creator of #1000BlackGirlBooks! Here she is reading to a group of kindergarteners at her very own school. What an inspiration you are, Marley! So proud of you! #ForTheLoveOfBlackGirls. #WorldBookDay #BlackGirlhood
