Meet Marley Dias

Marley Dias is the incredible 12-year-old behind the movement #1000blackgirls. Unable to find herself in literature, she set out on a mission to collect and donate books featuring black female protagonists.

And she not only succeeded, she collected close to ten times that amount.

Watch her speak about her mission below. And awesome news – through her amazing efforts, she’s landed a Scholastic book deal. Congratulations, Marley!
