<p>Marley Dias Fills Us in on Her Amazing #1000BlackGirlBooks Initiative</p>

Marley Dias was tired of reading about "white boys and dogs" and so #1000BlackGirlBooks was born! The 12 year-old is being honored with this years Black Girls Rock Making a Difference award. Dias stopped by ESSENCE Live to talk about making a difference in her community and how she plans to spend her summer (hint hint it's full of so much #BlackGirlMagic we want to be invited).
