9780486277547: Famous African-American Women Paper Dolls (Dover Paper Dolls)

From their beginnings in this country as slaves and chattels, 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 16 costumed dolls — each with one additional costume — depicting such notable African-American women as Phillis Wheatley, an early American poet; Sojourner Truth, preacher and abolitionist; educator Mary McLeod Bethune; twentieth-century novelist Zora Neale Hurston; tennis player Althea Gibson; Rosa Parks, the "mother" of the civil rights movement; opera star Leontyne Price; writer, poet, and actress Maya Angelou; and eight other distinguished women: Pauline Cushman; "Madam" C. J. Walker, Patricia Roberts Harris, Shirley Chisholm, Mae C. Jemison, Barbara Jordan, Judith Jamison, and Toni Morrison.
Carefully researched and accurately illustrated, these figures will provide paper doll enthusiasts with hours of inspirational entertainment as well as giving students of history an opportunity to learn about the lives and careers of a number of America's most distinguished African-American women.
