American Black Beauty Doll Artists' annual Festival of Black Dolls
Join the African American Museum & Library at Oakland for the American Black Beauty Doll Artists' annual Festival of Black Dolls, a cultural celebration that showcases the craft of black doll making.
The one-day collectibles event features the handiwork of local doll makers and shines a spotlight on African American dolls.
This year's festival will feature dolls and an exhibit on Ruby Bridges, the iconic girl that desegregated the all-white William Frantz Elementary School in Louisiana in 1960.
