This is a miniature version of a recent mural I painted in Harlem on PS 92. It features 11 year old literary activist Marley Diaz.
She started a project called 1000 Black Girl Books in response to a desire to see more books be available to girls her age which feature characters that she can relate to instead of "white boys and dogs"
the painting is 28" x 32"
