Jackie Ormes (August 1, 1911 – December 26, 1985) is known as the first African American female cartoonist. Her strips, featuring the lovable characters Torchy Brown, Candy, Patty-Jo, and Ginger, appeared in the Chicago Defender and Pittsburgh Courier in the 1930s - 1950s. 

Jackie Ormes said, “No more…Sambos…Just KIDS!” and she transformed her attractive, spunky Patty-Jo cartoon character into the first upscale American black doll. At long last, here was an African American doll with all the play features children desired: playable hair, and the finest and most extensive wardrobe on the market, with all manner of dresses, formals, shoes, hats, nightgowns, robes, skating and cowgirl costumes, and spring and winter coat sets, to name a few.

snarkbender:

these dolls, man.

in both cases, they’re a rare example of a doll w/light brown skin from the company that makes them, rarer still that they have brown/black hair & dark brown eyes—but both are also in stereotypical “Gener-Indian” outfits, and the Petite Blythe has the questionable “Indian” name of “Little Running Deer”. 

can’t these folks make brown dolls w/dark hair & eyes w/o putting them in offensively stereotypical costumes?

in both cases, I’m considering adding them to my collection, and in both cases I’d change them out of their silly costumes & put them in some more modern fashions.
