One day in the late 1940s, Creech, a white florist, was leaving the Belle Glade post office when she happened upon two black girls playing with their dolls. What a pretty picture they made, she thought.
Then she realized the dolls were white - and she walked away disturbed, as she had been upon seeing such incongruities in the past.
"A black child playing with a white doll was not getting the correct self- image," she said. "And it was important for all children - black and white - to see a quality black doll, a doll representing the beauty and the character, the good features, of a black child."
