About The Museum
The National Black Doll Museum has a three-fold mission: to nurture self-esteem, to promote cultural diversity, and to preserve the history of black dolls by educating the public on their significance.
In pursuit of our mission, we use Black dolls as both our subject and our artistic medium. We empower our visitors by cultivating their self-knowledge and encouraging their creative skills. We provide a welcoming place where people of all backgrounds can have honest discussions on important topics involving race and cultural differences.
And we are proud to be part of a community. We achieve our goals through collaborations with other museums, cultural centers, organizations, and individuals. Cultural education of African American history is exchanged via workshops, seminars, and presentations. We pride ourselves on being a place for all people.
Virtual…For A While.
Like many other community organizations, The NBDMHC met with big changes and challenges in 2020. As a result, we had to close our original brick-and-mortar location in Mansfield, MA and relocate temporarily to the internet.
As you’ll see, we have taken all the things we’ve always done “on-site” and put them online. This includes presenting live workshops on doll-making and Black cultural history, offering virtual tours of past exhibits, hosting live events with special guests and of course, providing Black doll fans a chance to visit many of their favorite pieces from our 7000+ doll collection.
As we find a new home, our work goes on and we hope you will join us! Please, explore and enjoy The Virtual NBDMHC from the comfort and safety of home!
