I simply cannot stop reading about this 12 year old wunderkind! Marley Dias is abiding by her own rules and, clearly, rule one is age is just a number. Way before the ripe old age of 12, Marley crashed the scene by expressing her thoughts about the number of children’s books focused solely on “white boys and dogs.” But if that wasn’t spectacular enough, she did something most adults don’t and leaped into action. I love this chick.
Marley decided to collect 1,000 books with black females as the main character. This book drive quickly turned national and yielded 8,000 books for schools. Did I say how much I love this chick? Enjoy the video to learn more!
