#1000blackgirlbooks Campaign

Donations and books will benefit the Retreat Primary and Junior School and Library in the parish of St. Mary, Jamaica.

Sick of finding books about white boys and dogs at her school library, New Jersey preteen Marley Dias launched the #1000blackgirlbooks project. The social media campaign is an outreach program designed to collect 1000 books that feature black girls as the main characters. (GalleyCat)
