Monday Inspiration: Marley Dias Surpasses Her Goal!
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!
