An African-American boy launches a book club featuring literature with positive Black characters.

Scholastic plans to publish a children's book on social activism. It's written by 12-year-old Marley Dias.

"Marley Mag's" first issue includes interviews with Oscar-nominated filmmaker Ava DuVernay and famed ballerina Misty Copeland.


After it was announced this week that a Long Island, New York high school senior was accepted to all eight Ivy League schools, NewsOne decided to pay tribute to other students who also achieved major milestones over the past couple of years.

Barnes & Nobles and Ellen DeGeneres supported Marley Dias on her quest to find 1,000 "black girl books".
