Black Barbie: A DocumentaryDirected by Lagueria Davis
A necessary and timely counter-punch to Greta Gerwig’s 2023 BARBIE film, BLACK BARBIE delves into the transformative arrival of Mattel’s groundbreaking Black Barbie. By examining the ways that the absence of black images in the “social mirror” left Black girls with few opportunities for self-reflection — and dissecting the complex cross-section of merchandise and representation — BLACK BARBIE celebrates the Black women who refuse to be invisible and their struggle to elevate their own voices and stories.
