1940 and recent “Doll Test” revealed that black children prefer white dolls to black dolls and view black dolls as ugly and bad. On its way around the world, The Black Doll Affair is a grassroots, philanthropic, social movement that began in 2007. Headed up by black women referred to as The Black Dolls, Black Dolls are 18 years and older, all hues and sizes. Some Black Dolls are runway fashion models, others are community role models. Their common denominator, is to act as positive role models, reverse ugly ‘doll test’ results and change the way black girls are perceived. More importantly, the way they perceive themselves. "Dolls are more than toys, they're a reflection of hue we are!" - Dana Hill, Black Doll Affair Founder
