State of Georgia Proclaims Black Doll Affair Day

To Oprah with Love, from The Black Dolls

 

Hue we are and what we do!

Recipients of President Obama's "Presidential Volunteer Service Award", the members of The Black Doll Affair, The Black Dolls, are philanthropists. For black girls under the age of 12, The Black Dolls donate toy black dolls. For black girls ages 12-17, they host tween self-esteem summits. For black women 18 and older, they gather on and off-line for volunteer opportunities, community service, social work, conversations of legacy, inspiring celebrations and fun! Black Dolls have more fun! These are the Affairs of the Black Dolls! The Black Doll Affair is a social club for black women and girls hue love themselves and each other! Join for self esteem, sisterhood, service and social play!

In 2007, after witnessing Kiri Davis' documentary [above] "A Girl Like Me", and learning more about ugly results of the original "Doll Test" that played an integral part in Brown v. Board of Education [1954] Supreme Court ruling, Dana Mama Doll Hill founded The Black Doll Affair.

Why hue should join!

In recent Doll Test conducted by CNN & ABC, black children are still choosing the black doll as bad and ugly and the white doll as pretty and good. Daily, so that others can shine, black girls dim their lights. On television black women fight like cats & dogs. Within The Black Doll Affair, those stories retire.

The Black Doll Affair isn’t your typical social club and it’s not a black power thing. It’s a black empowerment movement! The Black Doll Affair is a lifestyle and beautiful journey into a celebration of hue you were born! Becoming a Black Doll offers achievement of personal success and accomplishment of sisterhood. The Black Doll Affair Social Club is where black girls retire from cliques; stop the head rolling, the un-lady like behavior, and the crabs in a barrel mentality, the hateration and the infighting, all while having the time of their lives! Black girls, this is your opportunity to love the skin you’re in, befriend the sista in the mirror; be kind to the girl next door; do better by the strangers put on your path; ditch that chip on your shoulder, lose that sista-girl attitude; and become a lot more graceful, a bit more gentle, a little less defensive, and a bunch more philanthropic! This is the social club black girls join to give life to the phrase “When we know better, we do better.”  This is where drama rides off into the sunset. This is where hate retires & love steps up! Black girls join The Black Doll Affair Social Club with the intention to love and live beautifully…internally, externally and intrinsically! This is where black girls grow into their true essence and awesomeness! This is where black gives back. This is where Black Dolls have more fun! This is The Black Doll Affair, a return to love.

Mission. Goal. Intention.

The Black Doll Affair’s mission is to empower black girls and remind them of their beauty - internally, externally and intrinsically. The Black Doll’s hue-manitarian goal is to return black girls and women to their true essence – love. Through self-esteem, service, sisterhood and social play, it is The Black Doll Affair’s intention to restore love for the girl in the mirror and thereby, leave a b'huetiful legacy for black girls around the world and the communities in which they live, work and play!
