The Doll Test

Show me the good doll.
Mothers give your children dolls that look like them to play with and to cuddle.

“Mothers!
Give your children dolls that look like them
to play with and to cuddle.
They will learn as they play and grow
to love and nurture their own children
and not neglect them.”

Despite being born into slavery in 1862, Ida B. Wells became a pioneering journalist and outspoken activist for civil rights and women’s suffrage. She co-owned and edited a Memphis newspaper where she courageously wrote about inequality affecting African-Americans. In addition, Wells (later known as Wells-Barnett) co-founded the National Association of Colored Women’s Clubs and the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Sculpted to her likeness and wearing a traditional blue dress with lace details, this collectible Barbie doll honors Ida B. Wells’ courageous activism and remarkable accomplishments. Doll stand and Certificate of Authenticity included. Doll cannot stand alone. Colors and decorations may vary. Barbie recognizes all female role models, and the Inspiring Women Series pays tribute to incredible heroines of their time – courageous women who took risks, changed rules, and paved the way for generations of girls to dream bigger than ever before. Each doll in the series features authentic clothing and accessories unique to each inspiring woman, plus educational information about their contributions to society and their respective fields. This doll is a part of the Black Label Collection. This collection includes some of Barbie Signature’s most sensational dolls designed for the adult collector like the Inspiring Women series, Day of the Dead, and more! Black Label dolls do not have a set edition size. #blackdollsmatter #blackdolls #blackhistory #idabwells #curvybarbie #curvyblackbarbie #barbiesignature #blackdollsofinstagram #barbie #inspiringwomen #blackwomen ...

Aunt Len was Lenon Holder Hoyte, a retired public school art teacher who amassed one of the most extensive and varied private collections of #dolls and #toys in the country. Her home was a three-story brownstone at 6 Hamilton Terrace that she bought in 1938 with her husband, Lewis. Mrs. Hoyte's #passion began in 1962 after she was asked to manage a doll show to raise funds for Harlem Hospital. After that, she became more and more involved in doll collecting for herself and traveled throughout the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean buying dolls, dolls, and more dolls. Mrs. Hoyte did not focus on any one kind of doll, but her collection's numerous #blackdolls were sought after. Unfortunately, Mrs. Hoyte became unable to take care of the #museum, it was closed and the collection was dismantled and auctioned off. The legacy of Lenon Holder Hoyte and Aunt Len's Doll and Toy Museum is one of #love and #dedication that lives on in the many private collections around the world and in 'The Doll Plays' by playwright, composer, actor Alva Rogers @alvasworld.
We honor Lenon "Aunt Len" Holder Hoyte on her shoulders #blackdollsmatter stands.

Today In Black Doll History!
Ida Roberts Bell was an educator and #blackdollmaker, well known for her hand-sculpted dolls of #famous African American leaders that she used to teach #blackhistory to her elementary students during the 1960s. In her words “I want every Black American to be aware of his #heritage and be proud of it.  I want every White American to know it.” Bell became a full-time #dollmaker post-retirement depicting African Americans who “played an important role in the growth, culture, and history of America.”
We honor Ida Roberts Bell on her shoulders #blackdollsmatter stands.
