Benefiting: The Black Doll Affair & Ties that Matter!
Ties That Matter is a nonprofit organization that teaches low income women to make and sell products created from recycled and donated neckties. Our primary focus is in Haiti where we help women form craft co-ops that provide reliable income for themselves and their villages. Our ability to aid these women on their path to financial stability depends on your generous support.
In other words, what to wear & what to bring.
Men can wear whatever they like. They should bring a tie for entry.

Created as a “pretty…philanthropic” solution to the ugly results of the black and white doll test experiment during Brown vs. Board of Education and more recent, The Black Doll Affair is a self-esteem movement and philanthropic social club, headquartered in Atlanta. With a presence in most US cities, The Black Doll Affair Social Club's mission is to change the way black girls are perceived and, more importantly, perceive themselves. We seek to empower black girls and remind them of their beauty - internally, externally and intrinsically. The Black Doll Affair's huemanitarian goal is to make the world a better place because of The Black Doll – those real and faux. For black girls ages 3-11, The Black Dolls donate toy black dolls for positive play. For black girls ages 12-17, The Black Dolls host tween self-esteem summits. To counteract negative images of black girls up to no good, The Black Dolls gather with other black women 18 and older for online and offline opportunities to serve others, have conversations of legacy, and host inspiring celebrations! The reason for the black heart in our logo is The Black Doll Affair's intention is to restore love for the sistagirl in the mirror. Our challenge is to find ways to do this through online and offline self-esteem summits, service, sisterhood and social play. When we achieve our mission, meet our goal, live up to our intention and conquer the challenges that greet us in our "pretty...philanthropic" efforts in love, we will be rewarded with a b'huetiful legacy for black girls around the world and the communities in which we live, work and play!
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 with their own day on the calendar in the state of Georgia! 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!
In 2007, after witnessing the problematic conversations in 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  Supreme Court ruling, Dana Mama Doll Hill created the perfect solution and 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 is not 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! Black Dolls are the stars of our show! Our supporting casts are our Porcelain Pals and Heroes. Porcelain Pals, are women who are not black and our Heroes are all races of men.
Don't call us Role Models! If our actions inspire others, well that's God' work. As imperfect human beings, we want the opportunity to grow into those big shoes called love. All the while making those inevitable life mistakes along the way, without the perfection of the unrealistic title of "Role Models" hanging over our heads. Every day people, we're only trying to become better individuals, make a positive impact on the black girl's legacy, and leave the world better because of our efforts! There is no such thing as a Role Model. It is a contrived title that not one of us born onto this planet has ever lived up to. Some of history’s greatest men were womanizers and, as historians have recorded, some of our most thoughtful teachers were riddled with lessons to learn. Whether you’re the First Lady of this great nation or a mega church, as human beings, we’re imperfect souls on our way to our next gigantic mistake. The Black Dolls, are NOT role models because our Founding Doll didn't want anyone of her Dolls to have to live up to THAT "foolishness!" With human blood mixed with yin and yang flowing so freely through each of us, who can really call themselves a role model? So, what are we?
We're ICONIC! Being ICONIC examples of dolling behavior is better than being a role model especially since being an icon is a realistic and achievable goal, unlike being a role model. The most important thing for The Black Dolls to have islovein our hearts. That’s the reason The Black Doll Affair’s iconic symbol is a black heart.
"Mama Doll" - "When we began to know for sure, that LOVE is all there is, terms like role models will have NO PLACE in our society. Role models ARE contrived ideas of societal standards that bore me. Black Dolls are society’s icons that put on a show for all those willing to love and grow!
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 sistah-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!
