In case you missed this… here’s a little Monday inspiration for you… AGAIN in the form of Marley Dias who initiated a book drive campaign to collect 1000 books with black female characters. I wrote about it in a blog post here.

It turns out she was successful and was interviewed by the Nightly Show hosted by Larry Wilmore. You simply HAVE to watch it. Now.

The Nightly Show – Marley Dias Talks #1000BlackGirlBooks

I agree! Enough with the books about White boys with dogs! If a decidedly talented 11-year-old girl can raise 1000 books by and about black girls for her school, just think of what we can do if we work together!

What do you think? How does this inspire you?
