Lady Sara Forbes Bonetta (1843-1880) was a Yoruba Egbado Omoba who was orphaned in
intertribal warfare, sold into slavery, and in a
remarkable twist of events, was liberated from enslavement, and became a goddaughter to
Queen of England, Queen Victoria.

She's kinda beautiful, the raw African type that we kind of overlook today. As opposed to the plasticky synthetic barbies that we're exposed to today.
