Black and White Dolls
Gee Bernard of Thornton Heath used these black and white dolls in lectures about racism in the 1980s. Gee became a Councillor of the Inner London Education Authority in 1981. She bought the dolls three years later in America. The black doll is much more poorly made than the white doll. "That can have a psychological effect on a child's learning and development. Hold onto the white because it's better than the black".
