Mattel Inc. is making a limited-edition Barbie series based on the oldest black sorority, Alpha Kappa Alpha, and will introduce it this week at the group’s biennial convention in Washington D.C.
AKA Centennial Barbie, the first Barbie based on any sorority, is outfitted in a pink and green evening gown, matching jeweled shoes and gold jewelry, reports the Chicago Sun-Times.
The Mattel doll will sell for $50 through the Barbie Collector catalog, the Barbie Collector.com website and retailers.
The sorority will pocket a percentage of the sales.
