Arabella Grayson

I was delighted to see that yesterday's Star-Ledger used a paper doll by Donald Hendricks to illustrate a book review about the family of Sally Hemings, "The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family." The caption also references the Smithsonian exhibit, "200 Years of Black Paper Dolls: The Collection of Arabella Grayson." Arabella gave a presentation on that topic at the convention. Her exhibit continues to travel, and she is also working on a companion book.

Bruce Patrick Jones did an excellent paper doll of Arabella, "Arabella on the Go."
