Barbie Video featuring "Black Moses" Harriet Tubman for Black History Month
This mock commercial for a Black Moses Barbie toy celebrating the legacy of Harriet Tubman is part of Pierre Bennu's larger series of paintings and films deconstructing and re-envisioning images of people of color in commercial and pop culture.
The detailing of Harriet Tubman's dress is crazy good. Freedom Ken and Freedom Christie's looks are functional and understated.
