About Us:: - -
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!

In January 2006, Oprah discussed the topic "Skewed Image" That day, Mama Doll (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 Mama Doll'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.
