The Legend of Cecilia: Hands-On History with the National Black Doll Museum
The Dorchester Historical Society, as part of the Dorchester Descendants Celebration 2013, is excited to welcome and host representatives from the National Black Doll Museum in Mansfield, Massachusetts. We will hold two story-telling and doll-making sessions that can accommodate 30 attendees per session. Adults may attend without children but all children need to be accompanied by an adult to supervise them.
Museum representatives will present The Legend of Cecilia and use dolls to tell the story. They will also share information about the history of dolls, focusing on dolls of color. The event will include a hands-on doll-making workshop for boys and girls. Participants can make action figures, baby dolls, and almost any type of doll they can imagine. ...
