A few weeks ago, we reported that One World Doll Project has chosen Cynthia Bailey of the Real Housewives of Atlanta as the face of their first celebrity doll. Now we've learned which of Cynthia's many hairstyles the figurine will don: and the winner is... Afro!
“Being a little girl myself many years ago, I used to love playing with dolls. I didn’t have an African American one and I definitely didn’t have one with an Afro, which the fact that the first Cynthia Bailey doll will come out with an Afro, just sends a very powerful message," she explained.
Cynthia further elaborated, “A lot of times with young kids, it’s a struggle to find your identity, to feel good about how you look,. So an afro for any African American child, it just sends a very powerful message saying, ‘Hey, you don’t have to have straight hair. You can have an afro and it’s okay'."
