The global children’s publishing, education, and media company Scholastic, has acquired world rights to an activism book written by Marley Dias, the 12 year-old social activist behind #1000BlackGirlBooks.
The impressive young woman started an international movement to collect and donate children’s books that feature Black girls as the lead character.
Marley is using her voice to advocate for social justice, a commitment reflected by her ambitious life goals: she dreams of becoming an editor of her very own magazine and plans to use media to spread positive messages and to perpetuate more socially conscious pop culture.
“I am so excited to be doing this book with Scholastic,” said Marley Dias, whose book will be published in Spring 2018 by Scholastic Press.
