Marley Dias #1000BlackGirlBooks

New Jersey student Marley Dias is on a mission: to collect 1,000 books that feature black girls as protagonists, and donate them to a Jamaican school.

Dias, an 11-year-old Philadelphia native, kicked off the #1000BlackGirlBooks drive in late 2015, but new attention from local media has pushed her campaign into the spotlight.

Draw or write about books that have fictional characters that are NOT white children and their pets.
