The trailer for the highly anticipated “Black Barbie” film has just been released, marking a significant moment in the portrayal of diversity in cinema. Scheduled to stream on Netflix, the film promises to delve into the rich history and cultural significance of Mattel’s groundbreaking Black Barbie doll, which debuted in 1980.

Directed by Lagueria Davis, the film chronicles the invaluable contributions of three key Black women at Mattel: Beulah Mar Mitchell, Stacey McBride Irby, and Kitty Black Perkins. These women played pivotal roles in the development and representation of the Black Barbie. Notably, Mitchell’s bold inquiry to Ruth Handler, the company’s founder—”Why don’t we make a Barbie that looks like me?”—serves as a catalyst for the film’s exploration of inclusivity and representation in the toy industry.
