I Want One Just Like Me - UK Doll Event


I had the pleasure of "meeting" Ama Gueye after visiting her Operation Sankofa website where a celebration of black dolls and black heritage takes place. I enjoyed reading Ama's personal quest to seek knowledge about her heritage and viewing the gallery, especially the images of Dolly and her dolls.

Ama's upcoming black doll event is what connected us. While I am not able to attend this London, England event, I offered to share information about it here. Spreading the word about the celebration and appreciation for the need of black dolls anywhere, anytime, and in any form is one of the things I enjoy doing.

    1. Vanessa,

      You have an impressive, often daredevilish list of things you'd like to do/accomplish.

      This does does sound like a wonderful event. I look forward to seeing Ama's pictures.
