Visit Cape Fear Museum to view the award-wining documentary Why Do You Have Black Dolls? and examine a collection of handmade black dolls. Director Samantha Knowles’ 26-minute documentary focuses on the little-known black doll community and shares heart-warming and powerful stories of the history, beauty, and pride that is the black doll.  At the event, creator and collector Rachel Sherrod will give visitors a chance to get up close to dolls from her personal collection.
