A words from the Detroit Doll Show host, Sandra Epps:
I believe it is important for Women and Children to see themselves in the products that they use. Playing with dolls help children to develop cognitive, fine motor and self-help skills. Most importantly, dolls can teach self love. Often times then not, brown women and children struggle to love themselves because of the negative stereotype protrayed in the media, in addition to society's depiction of "beauty." It is true that image is everything and to see one's reflection in they're dolls, magazines, on television, etc. is healthy. We as aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, and friends must define our own beauty and encourage our children to love the skin that their in.
YES YOU are Beautiful no matter what
SHADE of SKIN You're IN!
The mission of the Detroit Doll Show is to celebrate history, culture, fashion, YOUR BEAUTY and having FUN
'Love the Skin You're In'
