BLACK DOLLS!-THIS GREAT YORUBA MAN CREATED GREAT BLACK DOLLS IN HIS “QUEENS OF AFRICA” DOLL LINE IN NIGERIA!- SUPPORT HIM NOW! -BLACK DOLLS FOR BLACK CHILDREN!-FROM DAILYMAIL.CO.UK

FROM DAILYMALL.CO.UK

Nigerian doll created by man who couldn’t find a black toy for his niece is so popular in his country that it’s outselling BARBIE

  • In 2007, Taofick Okoya, created a doll that Nigerian girls could identify with
  • 43-year-old based his Queens of Africa dolls on country’s biggest tribes
  • They cost roughly £4.50 and aim to promote strong feminine ideals
A man who couldn’t find a black doll in the shops as a gift for his niece decided to take matters into his own hands.
In 2007, Taofick Okoya, 43, created his own doll that Nigerian girls could identify with by recreating their skin colour and style – and it is now so successful that it is outselling Barbie.
The doll, which is called Queens of Africa, comes with traditional outfits and accessories and costs around £4.50.

The dolls’ look is modelled on three of the country’s biggest tribes and aims to promote strong feminine ideals, like love, peace and endurance.
The doll is now so popular that, according to Reuters, it is selling up to 9,000 units a month – a staggering 15 per cent of the country’s toy market.
But the Queens of Africa aren’t just selling in their home country.
Thanks to the doll’s online presence, customers are coming from as far as America, Brazil and Europe.

Taofick Okoya explains why ‘Queens of Africa’ are so important

Speaking to ELLE about his dolls out-selling Barbie in his native Nigeria, Okoya said: ‘My mission is to make the Queens of Africa a symbol of hope, trust, and confidence by promoting African history, culture, and fashion.’
One person that Okoya really hopes the dolls will have a positive impact on is his daughter, who, he explains, once wished she was white.
Okoya said: 'I don't believe Mattel sees the Nigerian market as a priority, yet their product has great influence on the psyche of the children here and affirms certain values contrary to our society'

Okoya said: ‘I don’t believe Mattel sees the Nigerian market as a priority, yet their product has great influence on the psyche of the children here and affirms certain values contrary to our society’
He explained that even though they live in Nigeria, there was a lot of Western influence. He said: ‘[This] might have been responsible for her wishing she was white. It made me aware that I needed to make her proud and happy being a black African girl, and not limit it to her alone as this was a common trend among the younger generation. The Queens of Africa became a platform to achieve this.’
Unfortunately, Okoya has been told that he won’t be able to sell the dolls on the shelves of mainline stories in America and will have to limit his business to specialist stores.
But he is determined to see the decision overturned, he said: ‘I am looking to prove them wrong.’

Denzel Washington gives 4 Great Takeaways to Dillard University Graduates

May 14, 2015

politics from the eyes of an ebony mom

Denzel Speaks:
1. Put God first: “Everything that I have is by the grace of God, understand that. It’s a gift. … I didn’t always stick with Him, but He stuck with me.”
2. Fail big: “Don’t be afraid to fail big, to dream big, but remember, dreams without goals, are just dreams. And they ultimately fuel disappointment. … I try to give myself a goal every day, sometimes it’s just not to curse somebody out.”
3. You’ll never see a U-Haul behind a hearse: “I don’t care how much money you make, you can’t take it with you. … It’s not how much you have, it’s what you do with it.”
4. While you’re on your knees in the morning, say thank you: “Say thank you in advance for what is already yours. … True desire in the heart for anything good is God’s proof to you sent beforehand…

“Women on 20s” Organization Pushing U.S. Treasury to Replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20

May 14, 2015

GOOD BLACK NEWS

A group that wants to kick Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill and replace him with a woman has, after months of collecting votes, chosen a successor: Harriet Tubman.

Tubman, an abolitionist who is remembered most for her role as a conductor in the “Underground Railroad,” was one of four finalists for the nod from a group of campaigners calling themselves “Women on 20s.” The campaign started earlier this year and has since inspired bills in the House and the Senate.

The other three finalists were former first lady and human rights activist Eleanor Roosevelt; civil rights figure Rosa Parks; and Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation. Now that voters participating in the campaign have chosen Tubman, Women on 20s will bring a petition with the people’s choice to the White House.

Back to the Motherland: Cubans in Africa

BACK TO AFRICA-ALL DESCENDENTS OOOO!

World Is Africa

Cuba: An African Odyssey is the fruit of fifteen years’ research and organizing on the part of Egyptian Jihan el Tahri. Treating three hot wars within the context of over “a quarter century plus one year, one month and one day” in the life of the larger Cold War.

Disguised in 1965, clean-shaved in a suit and thick-rim glasses, Che Guevara is another man — on shipping across Lake Tanganyika into the Belgian Congo/Democratic Republic of the Congo/Zaïre — to bring revolutionary expertise to those fighting for the leftist MNC ideals of popular PM Patrice Lumumba, usurped and murdered by Col. Joseph Mobutu. Before his own failure, capture and murder, Che would take Bolivian guerrillas to task on “the reality of war. I emphasized the importance of a united command and discipline . . . of the party’s line.” Unable to inculcate military or ideological order, Guevara left Africa…

Michelle Obama is no Angry Black Woman…she is simply telling the truth

OBAMA OOOO! IYAWO OBAMA OOOO!

politics from the eyes of an ebony mom

We are all a product of our experiences and we often share it with the people in our circle. When you are the First Lady your circle is much bigger. Mrs. Obama is coming under fire from the right for sharing her experiences with racism. She was speaking to a majority black audience who identified with her narrative. She was passionate as she shared her life story, but that passion is being misidentified as anger. This is so familiar to so many of us. too often when a black woman shows passion she is called angry or intimidating, but when her white counterpart reacts the same way she is showing passion and confidence. The Obamas are nearing the end of their tenure in the White House and they are feeling a new sense of freedom. They are now speaking frankly about race the third rail. The movie A Few Good…

May 14, 2015

BEAUTIFUL, ALSO, ARE THE SOULS OF MY BLACK SISTERS

The votes are in on the petition to have Harriet Tubman put on the US $20 bill.

It is more than past time to get the racist/butcher/genocidist Andrew Jackson off the $20 bill.

The following is an article from NPR News on the Women on 20s Campaign to get Ms. Tubman on the $20 bill. The founders of the campaign are hoping to put a woman’s portrait on the $20 bill by 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of women gaining voting rights in the United States.

Okay, President Obama, the ball is now in your and the United States Federal Treasury Secretary Jack Lew’s court.

Bye, Bye Baltimore…What is Next for Charm City?

May 12, 2015

BALTIMORE OOOO! #2

politics from the eyes of an ebony mom

it was a big week for Baltimore. The Freddie Gray tragedy played out on tape. We don’t know everything about this case but we do know what we saw was heartbreaking. The screams of Gray as he is dragged away are wrenching. The riots and the protests drew the attention of the national press. Some of the press drew well deserved attention to the case and the state of affairs in that part of Baltimore.  In a 24/7news cycle you often see things that we shouldn’t see. We saw reporters surrendering their microphones to almost anybody and everybody. We heard many tales of police abuse, but we only had the account of the supposed victim. The claims were accepted and unchallenged and that can not be described as good journalism, but is good journalism the same as good news? No good journalism requires fact checking and good news simply generates…
