Mattel is rolling out Barbie based on journalist Ida B. Wells

“I am honored that Barbie has chosen to celebrate my great-grandmother, Ida B. Wells, as part of its Inspiring Women Series,” Michelle Duster, Wells’ great-granddaughter and author of “Ida B. Wells, Voice of Truth,” said in a statement. “My great-grandmother was a pioneer who bravely followed her convictions and challenged the status quo by fighting for civil rights and women’s suffrage. This is an incredible opportunity to shed light on her truth and lasting legacy to give a new generation the opportunity to speak out for what they believe in. “
