American Girl has unveiled their newest historical doll: Claudie Wells

The fictional character grew up in New York City’s Harlem neighborhood in the 1920’s – an era that became known as the “Harlem Renaissance.” 

The American Girl official Instagram page shared a few fun facts about Claudie:

Claudie is growing up during the Harlem Renaissance, surrounded by artists. 

She’s never met a baked good she didn’t like – especially ones made by daddy!

She’s on a discovery mission to find her talent – get ready.

Claudie’s book is written by New York Times best-selling author Brit Bennett.

Now, what’s really cool is how Brit manifested this deal six years ago. 

She took to Instagram writing, “How it started, how it’s going 😎 finally got to live out my millennial dream and create a new historical character for American Girl.” 

See her original post below. 

In honor of Claudie’s release, American Girl is donating $100,000 to support the Harlem School for the Arts! 

The Claudie Wells doll was unveiled on Tuesday’s episode of “CBS Mornings.”
