ST. PETERSBURG – The fourth annual Bring Out The Dolls, Balls & Books holiday gift gathering celebration for young boys and girls was held at the Carter G. Woodson African American History Museum Dec. 17.
Bring out the Dolls is the brainchild of Attorney Shannon Ligon, founder of Legacy Entertainment & Arts Foundation. The concept came when a 12-year-old girl Ligon was representing in Orlando was being bullied because of her natural hair.
Ligon and members of her foundation came up with an idea to help her young client find “self-esteem, encouragement and the support to understand that no matter what you look like or where you come from, we are all beautiful.”
