Representation makes a world of difference to people, and sometimes, we don't even realize it. Dolls are a quintessential part of childhood, but up until now, there hasn't been an inclusive market for them. We're seeing a wider range of skin tones, sizes, and styles surface in the past few years, but there is still a huge lack of representation.
Kay Black is on a mission to change that by creating detailed, custom-made dolls that are inspired by her customers. She has done dolls that spread the message that black is beautiful, but recently, she has also been doing dolls with the rare skin condition vitiligo. No doubt, this artist is changing the world and making a difference, one doll at a time.
