Ruby Lane Dolls Insider February 2019


DOLLS AND BLACK HISTORY MONTH

Black dolls play an important role in Black History Month. Entire museums and collections are devoted to them, as are many books and articles. Black dolls play a crucial role in American and World history as works of art and cultural artifacts. This February, we are honoring the history of black dolls by sharing the beautiful examples on the Dolls Lane, and by re-publishing a blog article from 2017 that was very informative and popular.
