Tamara Dobson, 1947-2006

What little black girl didn’t want to be the beautiful, statuesque Cleopatra Jones? I know I did. I wanted that hair (And, finally got it…at age 12 and 36!), and I wanted that jacket too, (but, they didn’t have it in the chubby section). She was beautiful, poised and classic; nappy hair and all. She didn’t have to conform to western standards of beauty to be a shero. Suffice it to say that my heart broke when I heard of her transition.
