In that Doll Test (scroll down for that video) and similar experiments conducted regularly since, black children identified the black doll as: bad, ugly and the one they least preferred. Founded in 2007, by Dana "Mama Doll" Hill, The Black Doll Affair self-esteem movement is the solution created to change those results.
