“Mothers! Give your children dolls that look like them to play with and cuddle…They will learn as they grow older to care for and love their own children…”
– Marcus Garvey

Dolls are a child’s first introduction to self- image, their  stories are key elements in our personal heritage. Regardless of one’s cultural background, everyone has a story to tell. African- American history is filled with stories of enslaved Africans captured and relocated to a strange land and bravely asserting their own cultures.  The history of black dolls is about more than just objects of play.Black dolls have played a critical role in building a diverse American society and rich African American culture. NBDMHC uses their collection along with engaging images and artifacts to illustrate and tell those individual stories.
