Wednesday watch: #1000BlackGirlBooks


11-year-old Marley Dias was sick of reading books about “white boys and their dogs,” so she started a project to collect 1,000 books about black girls. This video from AJ+ features Marley telling the story of the campaign. With this inspiring project already under her belt at 11, I can’t wait to see what she does next.
