FUN FACTOIDS about The Black Dolls in the Essence Summer Issue:

+ There are 3 covers - Ciara, Iman & Teyana. Iman is on the digital cover. The Black Dolls are on page 169 in all 3 issues!

+ The Summer Issue of Essence is 60 days long! That means we get two months of exposure, instead of the typical 1 month.

+ The Summer Issue of Essence will be distributed to one of the largest congregations of black women in the world - at the Essence Music Festival.

+This is the largest audience The Black Doll Affair has reached to date. Millions will see hue and learn of our mission to change the way black girls are perceived and, more importantly, perceive themselves!
