The makers of Barbie have released a doll that was created in the likeness of Golden Globe-nominated director Ava DuVernay, with the proceeds from the toy going to two charities – civil rights nonprofit “Color of Change” and human rights nonprofit “WITNESS.”
The doll was first showcased back in April as a set of six one-of-a-kind Barbie dolls based on six women for the Variety magazine’s Power of Women Luncheon, that included Duvernay, actress Kristin Chenoweth and fashion magazine editor Eva Chen.
DuVernay who has been writing and directing movies for many years, is best known for her work behind the historical drama film “Selma.” She also the first black woman to have her film nominated at the Academy Awards for “Best Picture.”
Mattel hasn’t said where the doll will be sold or how much it will cost, but be sure to keep checking for more details.
Congrats Ava!
