Ava DuVernay: Director of the Academy Award Best Picture nominee, SELMA, and founder of African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement, which provides opportunities and resources to underrepresented filmmakers.

The people asked. And Mattel listened. Starting today you’ll be about to purchase an Ava DuVernay ‘Sheroes’ doll from the Barbie Collection honoring women who have paved the way for young girls. According to Mattel, the doll wasn’t supposed to go into production, but because DuVernay’s fans were eager to purchase the doll, they decided to produce them.

On Sunday, the Selma director announced made the announcement on Twitter. Not only will the dolls make a lot of fans dreams come true, the proceeds will also benefit Color of Change and Witness.Org.

As of this morning, the doll hasn’t hit the website yet. But I’m steadily refreshing and refreshing, just so I can get my hands on one!
