Doll Legacy Award


I am one of four recipients of  the Doll Legacy Award presented by Sandy Epps of Sandy's Land Entertainment.

Other award recipients this year were:
Dr. Margaret L. Betts ("facilitator of the first Black doll show in Detroit over 12 years ago")
Tony Scott Grant of Haus of Swag and the Dollhaus Project
Georgette Taylor (formerly of Big Beautiful Dolls), founder of  the I Am Beautiful Doll Company


The awards were presented at the 2015 4th Annual Detroit Doll Show, which was held on November 14, 2015, at the Charles H. Wright Museum in Detroit, Michigan.

The award reads:

Doll Legacy Award
In Honor of Your Work That Inspires Women and Children
 to "Love the Skin They're In"
2015 Doll Show
November 14, 2015

To be recognized along with such other accomplished women for what I enjoy doing in the Black-doll community is such a great honor.  I regret that I was not able to be there to accept the award in person, but I have received it with great pleasure and gratitude.

Thank you again Sandy for honoring me and congratulations on the the success of this year's show. Wishing you many, many more annual Detroit Doll Shows that each surpass the success of the previous year's show by no less than tenfold.
