Had started the day pretty excited, was very productive too until the latter half took a 360 degree turn. Just trying to stay positive. I know portraits are not my strongest point but wanted to get some positive energy from twelve year old Marley Dias who started the #1000blackgirlbooks project. When she said reading should not be put as a punishment for kids it just lighted me up. So much grace and confidence. I could use her energy today.

Marley Dias is just a 12 year old who decided to make a change when she was in the sixth grade. She was tired of reading books about characters that didn't look like her, so she started #1000BlackGirlBooks to collect and donate 1,000 books to black girls with characters that represented them. Through a simple gesture that blew up, Marley has inspired us to not let our age crush our dreams and desires to make an impact on the world! If Marley can do it, you can too!

Fun Fact: Marley (@iammarleydias ) will be the author and main character in her own book coming out soon!

MARLEY DIAS
What is your favorite book and why?

Brown Girl Dreaming by Jacqueline Woodson. It was a gift from my Titi Eva (my aunt) on my 9th birthday. I tried to read it and couldn't understand it. This was really strange for me. I am an avid reader, so this book was my first reading challenge. It is a book written in verse, like a poem. The style and content were new for me. I put it on my shelf and waited until my 10th birthday to try to read it again. I finally understood it and I loved it. It is my favorite book because of the experience of going from not understanding to understanding. It taught me that time can solve a lot of problems. It taught me patience, and it made me more humble about my talents.

11 YEARS OLD MARLEY DIAS
How did you get the idea for #1000BlackGirlBooks?

I came up with the idea of creating #1000BlackGirlBooks while I was in 6th grade. In my 5th-grade class, the books I had to read did not have any diverse characters. All the books focused on one type of central character. These books, such as Where the Red Fern Growsand the Shiloh series, all had a white boy and his dog as the main characters. While I had books about black girls at home, we did not read books like that at school.

Why is it important to read books about different types of people?

I think it is important that books reflect the world we live in and the people who are reading them. Our society has lots of different people and there are kids of all races, ethnicities, religions, and family types in my classes. I think the books we read should reflect all of us. When our stories are missing, it can suggest that these stories do not matter.

Did you make your goal, and what did you do with all those books?

My goal was to collect 1,000 books. I thought of the hashtag #1000BlackGirlBooks and the idea of a community book drive. I started collecting donated books in my hometown. As my project grew more popular, I received donations from all over the world. I have now collected over 7,000 books, and donated them to communities that need books and communities that need diverse books.
Do you have another project in the works?

Yes, I have two projects in the works. I am working on a book. I am also trying to work with the people who make the decisions about which books to teach in schools. I want to share with them why I think it is important to include diverse stories in school, so I am speaking more. I also am working on a literacy tour that brings books to kids outside of school.

When Marley Dias (@iammarleydias) was 11 years old, she was a voracious reader. But she was sick of the books she was being given in school because, as she'll tell you, they were all about white boys and their dogs. And so, she set about changing that.

In November 2015, Dias launched a campaign called #1000BlackGirlBooks. Her goal was simple: collect and donate 1,000 books that feature black girls as the main character. Today, Dias has accumulated more than 9,000 books and has landed a book deal of her own.
