A 12-year-old feminist and author has become the youngest person to make it to the Forbes 30 under 30 list.

She launched a campaign called #1000BlackGirlBooks in November 2015, when she was in sixth grade. The goal was to collect and donate 1,000 books that feature black girls as the main character.
