For Mattie P. Sanders, every doll tells a story…all 2,000 of them. The dolls are a part of an exhibit titled “Black Footprints: Blacks Past and Present.”  The expo is meant to provide positive role models and build self-esteem among visitors young and old.

The dolls are arranged to imitate humans. They are mothers, fathers, grandparents, siblings, and adoptive parents. Some have health issues or display feelings.
