Dias, an eighth grade student at her local public school, loves to write, though even she admits she is surprised to have already written a book by age Having far surpassed her original goal of 1, books, Dias now hopes to collect and distribute 1 million black girl books across the globe to libraries, schools and community organizations, as well as create an app to go along with her book guide and possibly a future book club on a global level.
Dear black girl
I know this is considered an adult book, but I read it this summer and I think everyone should read it. This story is one of my favorites.
It is about a set of girls from Brooklyn and their friendship and how they deal with love and loss. I love this book because it shows us a different part of black-girl sisterhood and the joy that we can experience together.
Year-old founder of #blackgirlbooks shares some of her favorite re
This book makes you think and laugh. Luvvie is so funny and when you read her book, which is really a set of essays, you can hear her voice in your head.
I think this is a must read for anyone who wants to challenge themselves to be critical and also learn how to be expressive in their thoughts and ideas. This book has had the biggest impact on my life. It was my first Jacqueline Woodson book.
It is a book written in verse and it shares the story of a young girl and the challenges she faces growing up in the racially segregated south. The title, the cover and the story are all inspirational. This story is a graphic novel about a really smart girl from the Ivory Coast. It is a coming of age story, and like a lot of the books I like, Aya-the main character, is trying to figure things out.
The story is a little bit mature but I liked how Aya came out of her shell. This was one of my first black girl books.
Well-read black girl is a book club dedicated to black women writers.
I love how happy the little girl is. Support Provided By: Learn more.
