Barbie Mod Squad and Negro Francie Advertisement

c. 1967

Manufactured by Mattel

Negro Francie was introduced during the late 1960's. Even her name reflects are then common acceptance of what were later to be considered very racist notions and terminology. Perhaps she was produced in addition to the traditional white versions in an attempt to spread racial equality and exceptance...?
