1000 Black Girl Books Resource Guide 

“This resource guide was created from the #1000blackgirlbooks campaign led by Marley Dias who has now collected over 4000 books. The guide includes some of those books that have been catalogued into an easy to find database. This information here is appropriate for youth, parents, educators, schools, and libraries.”

From Marley’s introduction “I love reading and I love reading all kinds of books. I think it is important that if we want the world to be a better place where everyone feels welcomed and understood then we must sure that children have books about black girls, and all kinds of people, not just white boys and dogs.”

The website currently lists 700 books, updated monthly. The database may be downloaded in a variety of ways (but not mobile) and they include a reading level filter with the following caveat “These broad categories are designed to facilitate the process of locating books. Please do not use them to categorize children’s, youth’s or adults’ intellectual capacity.”

This is a great resource, especially for teacher librarains – check it out!
