Mattel Barbie® Maya Angelou Inspiring Women Doll
The Barbie Inspiring Women Series honors Dr. Maya Angelou's lasting contributions with a charming, collectible doll sculpted to her likeness. This fully poseable Maya Angelou Barbie doll features a curvy body, carries a miniature replica of her prolific autobiography, and wears a head wrap and floor-length dress with beautiful floral print. Maya Angelou's extraordinary work as a poet, author, activist and teacher has earned her numerous awards and accolades, including 50 honorary doctorates and a Presidential Medal of Freedom. A gripping account of overcoming adversity in her early life, Dr. Maya Angelou's 1970 autobiography I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings was nominated for the National Book Award and continues to inspire readers today. In 1993, she became the first African American and female poet to speak at a U.S. Presidential inauguration. Girls need more role models like Maya Angelou because imagining they can be anything is just the beginning. Actually seeing that they can makes all the difference. This celebration of Dr. Maya Angelou makes a great gift for Barbie collectors and kids ages 6 years old and up.
