Beautiful Black Iconography!
This Dread Barbie are also super cute.. I saw them on Naturally Beautiful's blog. Of which I absolutely love btw!!!!
One can find the Dreadlock and Natural Barbies! They're by a woman named Vanessa!!! I love them... I can't wait to buy so I can support this Black female entrepreneur! Very Cool
I love her! I wish she was around while I was growing up! GEESH! Luckily, I came from a household where my dad was quick to throwaway the white dolls I got from my predominantly White peers as presents. I know, its extreme but he'd buy a new one in its place. I had maybe at best one white doll and I seldom played with it. We eventually tried to make it into a white Ken doll for our friend. Unsuccessfully, of course. We need a petition for Black parents and peers alike to buy Black dolls for our children. Regardless how foolish it seems, it affects our psyche.
