I started Melanin Media Mondays because I wanted to showcase all the positive things that black girls and women are doing that often don’t make it to the “mainstream” media. The great thing about the internet and social media is that we no longer have to wait for “mainstream” to tell us what is beautiful, talented, or truly newsworthy.
Today’s feature is a young woman that just makes my heart heart happy beyond words. Her name is Marley Dias and I think that she is amazing.
She has to be one of the coolest young ladies going. She is just the type of black princess that the world needs to see. If you haven’t heard of Marley let me give you a quick peek at this amazing wonder. For starters she the mind behind the #1000BlackGirlsBook campaign. A wonderful campaign that donates books to libraries and schools that showcase black girls as the main character. The little princess also has her own magazine called Marley Mag in partnership with Elle magazine. She is what I personally think of when I hear Black Girl Magic.
Way to go Marley! You have inspired this big girl 🙂
