I agree with Donna & Debbie, I have a wonderful collection
of BEAUTIFUL Black dolls in all different hues and eye colors from Himstedt,Fayzah Spanos,DWI Saptono,Christine Orange,Reva Schick, Eva Helland, Lee Middelton,Donna Rubert
Rusty,and even one I've created on my own with the Apple Valley kits, There are so many Beautiful black dolls around that I can't understand Sylvia's post, I use to feel the same way until I started to open my eyes to more aware artist, I would be happy to send photos of my dolls If just to prove my point that we've come a long way in African American Dolls. God Bless!
