July 27, 2016  |  

Earlier this year, 11-year-old Marley Dias collected over 1,000 books where black girls are featured as the protagonist. After being frustrated with reading books in her classroom about white boys and their dogs, she started a social campaign bringing awareness to the inequality problem we currently have in our literature and received national coverage for her efforts. In this episode of Be The Boss Kids Edition, Marley shares her journey and she also encourages other young girls to follow their dreams and make a difference no matter how old they are.
