Famous African-American Women Paper Dolls
From their beginnings in the United States as slaves through years of struggle for freedom, respect and equal opportunity, African-American women have traveled a long and difficult road. This full-color paper doll collection pays tribute to that struggle and reflects the role of black women in American society. Included are sixteen dolls depicting such notable women such as Phillis Wheatley, an early American poet; Sojourner Truth, preacher and abolitionist; educator Mary McLeod Bethune; 20th century novelist Zora Neale Hurston; tennis player Althea Gibson, Rosa Park, the "mother" of the civil rights movement; opera star Leontyne Price; writer, poet and actress Maya Angelou; and eight other distinguished women.
