Welcome to the #1000BlackGirlBooks campaign. I started this campaign because I wanted to read more books where Black girls are the main characters. With your help we have collected over 13,000 books; many of them have the same title, but we do have lots of unique ones as well. This database includes 1000 of those books and more is coming. We try to update the database every 3 to 6 months.
A #1000BlackGirls database was created in direct response to the multiple requests made by educators, parents and students. Like Marley Dias, so many of you have asked for books with Black girls as the main characters. And because of you, we have received thousands of books. GrassROOTS Community Foundation has put together a database of all the books we have received. You can browse titles by reading levels.
Help support #1000BlackGirlBooks campaign!
