Campaign Inspiring Inclusion of Black Girls in Books

At 10 years old, Marley Dias loved to read but hardly ever came across protagonists who looked like her, so she decided to do something about it. In November 2015, Dias launched the #1000BlackGirlBooks campaign to raise awareness about the lack of black girl characters and inspire young people to take action. She has also compiled the 1000 Black Girl Books Resource Guide to include some of the 9,000 books the campaign has cataloged into an easy-to-find database. The information in this free guide is appropriate for youth, parents, educators, schools, and libraries.
