Dana Mama Doll Hill, BDA Founder

"If beauty is hard to define, black beauty is rocket science! Beauty can’t be defined. It certainly can’t be placed in a box. Some advertising campaigns would have hue believe that black women are not the standard for beauty… and YET prototypes of our genetic body parts are being sold in record numbers. From the island tan to the bee stung lip, to injections at the cheek and hip, don’t believe the hype that you’re of bargain basement value. Doll, you’re a Goddess, genetically engineering a multimillion dollar b’huety industry! Black beauty, like any designer knockoff, has often upstaged fashion’s status quo and created trends that ignite unexpected brands and inspiring iconic phrases, such as Black Doll!" - Dana Mama Doll Hill

OK, so let's just get "it" out of the way. It's one of the most frequently asked questions on the playground, "How old is Dana "Mama Doll" Hill?" She was born in 1971. Do the math.

DETERMINED to change the way black girls are perceived and perceive themselves, she's their beloved Mama Doll! And like any Mama, she's serious about her babies playing well with others! Way over the stereotypical cat fight of which some black girls love to involve themselves and the television cameras love to capture, her role on the Black Doll Affair playground is to remind a black girl of her beauty - inside & out! Leading black women to a b'huetiful vision of hue, she will pull a Doll off the playground for being "ugly" towards others. With love as her intention, she has devoted her life to the MISSION of The Black Doll Affair and extends an OPPORTUNITY to black girls as a Black Doll, living rolemodolls. If it's your goal to become the BEST person hue can be, like most of her Dolls, you'll love her! If you're not ready for Mama Doll's love offering - you're not ready for The Black Doll Affair!

Declared a "Woman to Watch,” by Palm Beach Illustrated Magazine, her college classmates gave her the title "Most Likely to give Oprah a run for her money! If you've ever been in the presence of this alluring woman, you'll realize what everyone else has; she's an unstoppable energy that pushes beyond the status quo to break new ground!

She's been the subject of magazine and newspaper interviews, seen on yellow cabs and when a life-size billboard of her went up at 52nd and Broadway, she created quite a buzz in Times Square. Sports fans have heard her on the airwaves of ESPN Radio and countless others have witnessed her PR & Event production magic for legendary stars like Dan Marino and Ronald McDonald!

Her illustrious career has lead to success as a securer of corporate sponsorships, a spokes model, newspaper journalist, TV and radio broadcaster, marketer, event producer and publicist! After being dubbed, "Queen of Events" and enjoying the title of, "One of the most creative marketing minds around," she left her post at her South Florida publicity firm {Hill Girl, Inc.} and moved to Atlanta. Today, Dana Hill is a PR, Marketing and Event Consultant and founder of The Black Doll Affair™, a project that allows her to make the world a better place!

In response to the new ‘doll test’, in 2007, Dana created the Black Doll Affair™. The Black Doll Affair™ is a social network of beautiful black women who donate black dolls to black girls at Christmas. The philanthropic women of the Black Doll Affair™ are referred to as "The Black Dolls™." The Black Dolls™ are volunteers of all ages and sizes - some are fashion models, while others are role models. By donating beautiful black dolls, all hope their efforts will increase the self-esteem of black girls and remind them of their beauty.
