Creator of #1000BlackGirlBooks Launches ‘Marley Mag’

September 23, 2016

Preteen activist and blogger Marley Dias has created a zine for ELLE.com celebrating black girls like her. Last year, Dias launched the #1000blackgirlbooks campaign to help get stories about girls of color into the hands of young readers.

In her new publishing venture, Dias interviews such icons as ballerina Misty Copeland and director Ava DuVernay.

I want to change the way we imagine black girls in books and in culture and I want to create new spaces for black girls to be represented. (ELLE.com)
