New Moon Girls Magazine

Group of black dolls photo from the early 1900s to mid-2000s, first published in Wikipedia for the "black doll" entry I added in the mid-2000s; (the entry has since been revised by other Wikipedia editors).

In late-April 2020, I was contacted by Mr. Joe Kelly the co-founder and co-managing editor of New Moon Girls magazine who asked for permission to use the above photograph in the summer 2020 issue of this publication. The photograph is included in the article, "Playing With Dolls," which was written by New Moon Girls members. Readers were surveyed and girls shared their doll stories.

New Moon Girls is described as follows:

We are the original girl-created media. Girl editors, writers, artists and creators from around the world direct our content. They work with adults using our pioneering Share the Power method.
New Moon Girls provides innovative, safe, respectful, and advertising-free spaces online and in the magazine where girls develop their full potential through compassion, creativity, and community.
NMG is for every girl who wants her voice heard and her dreams taken seriously in the world.
 I am honored to have been asked to contribute the photo for the "girls'" article.

NMG is for girls ages 8 to 14 (but I enjoyed it, too!). Visit the NMG website at the URL link below where you can download a past issue for free.


There are countless items to collect and write about. Black dolls chose me.
