Message from Mama Doll
Become a Black Doll! No Membership fee. Just buy your Doll Tee!
In "Doll Tests," black children chose the white doll as pretty and good while identifying the black doll as bad and ugly. On TV, we see black women behaving less than dolling. Good or bad, how we perceive ourselves is learned unconsciously in childhood. Becoming philanthropists, giving away black dolls, playing with living and toy black dolls are great ways to reverse negative notions and rethink our internal concepts about ourselves and each other. These are the Affairs of The Black Dolls and our "pretty...philanthropic" solution to disempowering social issues affecting our community. "Be a Doll, give a doll!" To become a Doll, there are NO membership fees, simply purchase your Doll Tee. Then follow the easy steps to get involved and begin life as a Doll. Sponsored by Macy's & Mattel (Barbie brand), join us for social change, philanthropy and play!
