Meet Marley Dias. She’s a 12-year-old activist and author.

In November 2015, Marley launched #1000BlackGirlBooks with a goal to collect 1,000 books with Black women as protagonists. Her story went viral, and to date, she’s collected over 8,000 books.

But that’s not all. Marley is a journalist who’s interviewed Hillary Clinton, Misty Copeland and Ava DuVernay.

Now she’s releasing her own book. Marley signed a publishing deal with Scholastic Books to release an activism guide for teens in 2018.
