If so, then you know here at @talkotuesday365 we are actively seeking out to show and highlight young people making a difference ... so easy to laugh & give attention to the negative. Let’s give it for the young ones doing something great. The ones making”power moves “!
Just like we promised on the pod .. Talk-O Tuesday Sweet Flan Highlight .... Let’s celebrate and give up to her . She was 11 years old when when she fell in love with reading . She was sick of the books she was being given in school because as she’ll tell you “they were about white boys and their dog.”
So she set out to changing that.
In Nov ‘15, Dias launched a campaign called #1000BlackGirlBooks. Her goal was simple, collect and donate 1,000 books that feature black girls as the main character. Today Dias has accumulated more than 9,000 books and has landed a book deal of her own.
Get to know and follow this smart motivated change making young lady who's moving in the right direction.
Congrats @iammarleydias !!! We here at @talkotuesday365 salute what your doing ! #blackgirlsrock
