"Why Do You Have Black Dolls?" is a documentary by Samantha Knowles that explores the history, beauty, and pride that is the black doll. As noted by the Huffington Post, this film is "more than just a look at black dolls and doll collectors--it begs deeper questions of identity and invites a really important conversation."
Featured doll artist Tanya Montequt will also be showing (and selling) her fantastic creations in person! Here is a look at her work: http://blackcrafters.ning.com/photo/art-of-the-main-jacob-javits-ny-2012
