Let's get you started learning more about the movement that started in Atlanta and is now worldwide...

This video started a movement back in 2007 ...

This woman saw the video and sparked a movement that has changed the world ...

In 2007, Mama Doll, the Founder of The Black Doll Affair, saw "A Girl Like Me" video. But it was during minutes 4:25-4:59 of the video that Mama Doll says, "The Black Doll Affair was born!" Wanting to do something about the horror she witnessed, Mama Doll threw what was supposed to be a one-time Christmas party called, The Black Doll Affair. The idea was simple: A Holiday party where black women of all shapes and hues would show up as living dolls with toy black dolls to donate and {hopefully} change the way black women and girls are perceived and, more importantly, perceive themselves. 

Hope floats. Almost ten years later, The Black Doll Affair movement was given Barack Obama’s Presidential Service Award. Congressman John Lewis signed a Proclamation for December 12th to become “The Black Doll Affair Day in Georgia!” 

Macy’s & Mattel, Inc support The Black Dolls in their Affairs. And, to lend their celebrity to the mission of the movement, Monica Kaufman Pearson, Taye Diggs and Danny Strong (The Butler & Empire) have become Black Doll Brothers! 

The Black Dolls are philanthropists that perform random acts of kindness and have a lot of fun! Therefore, their slogans are “Be a Doll, give a Doll!” and “Black Dolls Have More Fun!” The Black Doll Affair is a volunteer social club and self-esteem movement and social club. The Black Doll Affair slogan is “we’re pretty…philanthropic!”

That's the short version of our story.  On Meetup since 2007, the long version of our story can be found in our Black Dolls ONLY Meetup at:
