Black Woman Creates Black Doll With Natural Hair to Give Her Daughters Positive Imagery to Follow


For years, Melanoid children, especially Melanoid girls, have been shown images that aim to make them feel inferior, hence the disheartening “doll experiment that our children have been involved in. One Melanoid woman from Miami, Florida has sought out to reshape the inferiority complex that many of our children suffer from.

Angelica Sweeting, and her husband Jason, started to observe how their daughters “wanted to have yellow hair and white skin (according to Angelica)”, which moved Mrs. Sweeting to create Naturally Perfecta doll that exhibits the natural beauty of Black females. With its kinky hair that was actually tested for 8 months to ensure that it could withstand the various natural hair styling methods, the Naturally Perfect doll also boasts the classical African/Melanoid facial features and skin tone, which is a far cry from the synthetic look of the Black dolls created by manufacturers of the dominant society.

This is only the beginning for the Naturally Perfect doll, as Mrs. Sweeting’s Kickstarter campaign actually exceeded its funding goal of $25,000 earlier this week. We can boost our young girls perception of beauty and self-esteem by continuing to support Mrs. Sweeting’s movement.

Check out this video below that shows the Sweeting family explaining the Naturally Perfect doll.
