This print features the lovely Christie, Barbie's first African American friend who made her debut in 1968. Christie is gleaming with inner brilliance, wearing a gold and silver lame jumpsuit. She's bright, she's beautiful, she's got the midas touch! Christie is an important figure in the Black Power movement, appearing the same year as sthe black-gloved salute by John Carlos and Tommie Smith in the Olympics and the year before TVs Julia appeared. When Christie first appeared on the doll market, she made the bold, undeniable statement that an ebony skinned doll can be strikingly beautiful too. Unlike her predecessors and contemporaries, Christie was sophisticated, savvy, and up-to-the-minute. Like Barbie, Christie broke stereotypes and became a standard-bearer who permanently altered the American media's multi-ethnic definition of beauty.
