|This beautiful one-of-a-kind raffle doll honors Linda Brown of the landmark civil rights case, Brown v. Board of Education which led to the outlawing of US school segregation in 1954. Sadly, Ms. Brown died earlier this year on March 25, 2018.|
If you will be in the Oakland, California area on November 10, 2018, and you love dolls, ABBA's Festival of Black Dolls Show and Sale is an event you do not want to miss.
ABBDA is the oldest Black Doll organization in California. It was founded in 1984 by Karen Oyekanmi as a means of creating an appreciation of Black dolls for play and education.
Thank you, Karen Oyekanmi, (the artist of the raffle doll and, as indicated above, the founder of ABBDA) for allowing me to share this newsletter with the readers of this blog.
