The New York Historical Society has a fascinating and informative new exhibit featuring Black Dolls. ‘Black Dolls explores handmade cloth dolls made primarily by African American women between 1850 and 1940 through the lens of race, gender, and history. The exhibition immerses visitors in the world of dolls, doll play, and doll making while examining the formation of racial stereotypes and confronting the persistence of racism in American history.’ The exhibit is on thru June 5th, 2022. I encourage you to visit. For those that like tradition…here is my usual post when we Spring Forward.

Great, Judy. Let’s hope it helps us all Spring Forward toward those elusive equal rights.

Always good to see things that promote inclusiveness so thanks for showing this wonderful exhibit Judy! And by the way, did you hear about the doll with a frog on her head? Yep – it’s Lily!
