In 1980, a new Barbie hit the scene and she was Black! BLACK BARBIE: A DOCUMENTARY follows the personal journey of Beulah Mae Mitchell, who devoted 45 years to Mattel and witnessed the profound impact of Black Barbies on girls. Prior to her arrival, self-realization was imposed upon by white beauty conventions. The timely doc captures how this doll marks a transformative moment of Black femininity within the cultural narrative. Director Lagueria Davis scheduled to attend via virtual Q&A.
