Today Mattel released their "Sheroes" line of special edition Barbies to the public. Included in the collection is a doll in the likeness of filmmaker Ava DuVernay.
DuVernay, who was once a publicist, also heads Array, a distribution company for independent films produced by people of color.
The doll's launch is exciting for collectors and fans. It quickly sold out on Mattel's site, but is no available for pre-order on Amazon. According to the site, it will ship in January.
