Theme: “What Makes Me Beautiful?”
Exploring ideas about beauty and how African People are portrayed in the media – magazines, newspapers, film and television.
One of our most successful events to date! It appears the message is getting around about the concept behind ‘Operation Sankofa’ – celebrating and promoting Black Dolls. Attendance was brilliant and it was gratifying to see a good balance of age groups and gender.
The exhibitors were in their element and the atmosphere in the hall felt more like a family reunion. We were animated and noisy; doing too many things at once; all age groups interacting – not a murmur from the children; working the leg muscles on those stairs; looking and buying such creative offerings and then having the energy to bounce into our group dance at the end!!
