Barbie and the Black Woman: Why Purchasing Inclusion Doesn't Work

Online • February 21, 2017

Changing the world requires us to promote the living dolls, instead of Barbie dolls. Join us for a Jam Session with Jas Boothe as she talks about why purchasing inclusion just doesn't work.

Tuesday, February 21, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

Join us for a Jam Session with Jas Boothe as she talks about the issues with purchasing inclusion, and why it simply doesn't work. She'll discuss why we need to instead deliver a message that toys are not equality problem solvers, and what the larger issue is — one that goes beyond a price tag. Changing the world requires us to promote real-life women as role models, instead of Barbie dolls.

MAJ Jas Boothe is a disabled Army Veteran, Cancer Survivor, Speaker, Author, Advocate and Entrepreneur. Her struggles and triumphs have earned her many honors to include appearances and mentions on Oprah, CNN Hero, People Magazine Hero and Kelly and Michael Show, Unstoppable Mom, and many more.

We'll be live tweeting this Jam Session so be sure to follow along with us @EllevateNtwk!
