Debra Britt and her two sisters Felicia Walker and Tammy Mattison have amassed a stunning collection of African American dolls, according to one Massachusetts newspaper. The sisters held a Black Doll Collectors Convention at the Mansfield Holiday Inn (MA) the last weekend of May 2008. I'm sorry to have missed this event, thought to be the first one of its kind in Massachusetts.
Sponsors of the convention include Pearls of Wisdom, a sorority from Brockton, Sisters in Stitches, an African American quilting group in Holbrook, Black Gold DollClub, DALLSS Inc. and thePhiladelphia Doll Museum.
