Did hue know? Plastic pollution has become one of the most pressing environmental issues, as rapidly increasing production of disposable plastic products overwhelms the world’s ability to deal with them. Plastic pollution is most visible in developing Asian and African nations, where garbage collection systems are often inefficient or nonexistent. But the developed world, especially in countries with low recycling rates, also has trouble properly collecting discarded plastics. Plastic trash has become so ubiquitous it has prompted efforts to write a global treaty negotiated by the United Nations. The ocean and marine life are sick. We must ALL do something about it.

Being the change that we want to see, for our 15th Annual Doll Giveaway, Mama Doll, Founder of The Black Doll Affair, decided on paper, not plastic. Swimming in that direction, as the Face of the 2021 Doll Giveaway Sleigh, she chose marine activist, aka, The Mocha Mermaid, @danniwashington. Partnering with her burgeoning organization, @bigblueandyou, The Black Doll Affair is proud to switch from plastic dolls to paper dolls this year!Available this Christmas season, we're excited to introduce Black Doll Affair paper dolls, Paper Dane and her doll, Paper Dolly.We can’t wait to play with all of them and hue!

Empowering girls with paper dolls and teaching them a better way for a brighter future Christmas is coming December 4, 2021.

The Kiri Davis doll test On Oprah started our movement!

A movement to empower Black women and girls, our goal is to reverse “doll test” results where black children identified the black doll as bad, ugly and least preferred. Fifteen years ago, Mama Doll, asked Black women to become the black doll by behaving like dolls in their neighborhoods and changing the less than dolling stereotypical behaviors that cause our children to be ashamed of us. Awarded by President Obama with his Presidential Service Award, recognized on the floor of Congress by the late Congressman John Lewis, The Black Doll Affair is made up of Black women - The Black Dolls, Black Doll Brothas (men of all races) and Black Doll Porcelain Pals (any non-Black women.) Whenever The Black Dolls get together, whether we're feeding the homeless or gathering for a fun social Affair, we wear a Doll T-shirt and donate a black Barbie doll to our movement. This gesture is called "Be a Doll, give a doll" and those Barbie dolls are gifted annually to little girls to empower them. Our mission is to change the way Black girls are perceived and, more importantly, perceive themselves. Our intentional and random acts of dolliness take place around the world and are focused on empowering Black women and girls, as well as, helping anyone in need of dolling assistance.

Become a Black Doll! No Membership fee. Just buy your Doll Tee!

In "Doll Tests," black children chose the white doll as pretty and good while identifying the black doll as bad and ugly. On TV, we see black women behaving less than dolling. Good or bad, how we perceive ourselves is learned unconsciously in childhood. Becoming philanthropists, giving away black dolls, playing with living and toy black dolls are great ways to reverse negative notions and rethink our internal concepts about ourselves and each other. These are the Affairs of The Black Dolls and our "pretty...philanthropic" solution to disempowering social issues affecting our community.  "Be a Doll, give a doll!" To become a Doll, there are NO membership fees, simply purchase your Doll Tee. Then follow the easy steps to get involved and begin life as a Doll.  Sponsored by Macy's & Mattel (Barbie brand), join us for social change, philanthropy and play!

Fish eat plastic and it blocks their digestive systems and they die from starvation. Birds eat those fish and micro-plastics and suffer the same consequences. Hue and I eat fish and birds, and plastic is being found in us... are humans the new plastic? If so, what can The Black Dolls do about it this Christmas.
