A review of Marley Dias Gets it Done: And So Can You! by Marley Dias

Marley Dias Gets it Done: And So Can You! is an up close look at the amazing girl who founded the #1000blackgirlbooks campaign. She talks about how the campaign got started (“If only there’d been one book at school . . . just one . . . about a black girl and her dog . . . “), her own personal style (“intelligent, energetic, silly, and complex”), being a social and global activist (“Be the Change You Want to See in the World – Get Woke!”), and much more! It’s filled with wonderful photos and colorful pull-out quotes. It feels part autobiography, part photo album, and part heart-to-heart letter directly to her readers. An inspiring story for tweens, teens, and adults alike!
