Happy Anniversary!

During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, on January 17, 2021, one year ago today, DeeBeeGee’s Virtual Black Doll Museum was founded. During that time, brick-and-mortar museums and other facilities for the arts, education, and entertainment were closed to the public. The founder of the virtual Black doll museum recognized the need for a site for the public and the world at-large to celebrate antique, vintage, modern, and one-of-a-kind Black dolls.

One year later, several subscribers and many patrons have donated dolls, doll photographs, and monetary gifts. The goal of the museum is to continue Monday, Wednesday, and Friday installations of at least 1000 Black dolls in the combined doll categories of antique, vintage, modern, and one-of-a-kind. As of today, 27.4 percent of that goal has been reached. Whenever necessary, additional posts (like this one) to share news may also be published.

As of today, museum views are predominantly from the US and Australia. The goal is for all areas of the global map to be brown by this time next year!

Thank you for your continued subscriptions, readership, and support. DeeBeeGee’s Virtual Black Doll Museum is here for you, your friends, and your doll associates; please tell them about it by sharing this link (https://virtualblackdollmuseum.com/).

As a refresher or to view for the first time, see the first dolls installed in the museum here.
