“Each of us has a magic inside of us that we can use to make the world a better place.” —Marley Dias

When Marley Dias was in the sixth grade, she got tired of never seeing herself in the books she read for school. So she founded #1000BlackGirlBooks, collected thousands of stories featuring black girls as main characters and donated them to schools. In 2018, she even published a book of her own, Marley Dias Gets It Done: And So Can You! At that time, the author and activist was only 13 years old.
