This summer, the retailer is set to release a historical doll, named Melody, the third African-American doll from its BeForever line.



...Melody Ellison's story details her as a 9-year-old growing up in Detroit during the 1960s civil rights era. She loves to sing and uses her voice to help make a difference, the report notes.
