Attention all children of the ‘90s and doll lovers everywhere: Kenya’s making a comeback.
The super successful, first all-African-American doll line, Kenya, plans to re-launch this November and in addition to a shiny, new multi-platform advertising campaign, Kenya has a clearly stated mission: preparing the next generation of people of color for bright, positive futures.
