In preparation for Christmas, in one our our last "Lunch and Learn" Affairs of the year, we're calling all new Dolls to this Affair! "Be a Doll, give a doll" this holiday! Tis the season to be dolly!

The Black Doll Affair is a self-esteem movement and social club with a mission to change the way black women and girls are perceived and, more importantly, perceive themselves. Our mission is to change the world with dolls - those black, those white, those living and those for play!

Welcome to the Founder's FUN and informative Black Doll Affair! This Lunch & Learn is intended to get new Dolls acclimated and update Vintage Dolls how to continue to be dolling!

In January 2006, Oprah discussed the topic "Skewed Image" That day, Dana Hill (Founder of The Black Doll Affair) watched one African American guest after the next, discuss their struggles of growing up black in America. Then, a 17 year old black girl by the name of Kiri Davis {pictured above center) was featured. Kiri spoke to Oprah and her audience about her 7 minute documentary "A Girl Like Me" (watch it below). In the doc, Kiri focused her camera on her teen friends. They spoke of their internal and external struggles as black girls. But, it was when Dana witnessed Kiri's "Doll Test" that her life journey took a turn and faded to black. Witnessing black children of the new millennium identifying themselves as the "bad, ugly black doll" was altering and made Dana ask herself, 'What can I do to remind black girls of their beauty?" Welcome to Dana's "pretty...philanthropic" idea to the ugly results of the doll tests. This is The Black Doll Affair!

Stars of our show, our living Dolls are adult women willing to allow their likenesses and life stories to be used as examples in self-esteem. With their human imperfections and life mistakes in tow, they are b'huetiful living Dolls that accomplish our mission by donating toy black dolls to little girls for positive imagery play, and through online and offline self-esteem summits, service, sisterhood and social play for adult women.

All in attendance should be dolling by bringing a toy black doll or making a Paper Doll Money donation to The Black Doll Affair upon arrival.

*Lunch Clause: Ordering Lunch is mandatory for new Dolls, as the restaurant has expectations for us to meet in this private dining room setting. As an incentive for existing members to be on hand to meet & greet can their new doll sisters, lunch is not mandatory for vintage Dolls. You can order a cocktail or non-alcoholic beverage from our server without purchasing lunch. However, if you decide to eat, YOU MUST ORDER from selections from the $24.95 Pre-Fixe Menu.
