|African American Julia debuted in September of 1968, changing television history forever. Played magnificently by Diahann Carroll, Julia challenged stereotypes and changed perceptions. Warm, spirited, and determined, Julia became a star, who is fondly remembered even today. This wonderful reproduction of the original Julia doll from 1969 celebrates all that made Julia and Diahann so beloved. The strikingly beautiful doll wears a re-creation of Julias white nurses uniform, and features rooted eyelashes, bendable legs, and a Twist N Turn waist. Designed by Bill Greening.
