Donna Alexander, the first African American “Breck Girl” in 1975.
The Smithsonian explains the significance of the Breck Girl:
The Breck Girls portraits were born during the Depression and came of age in the 1940s and ’50s, times that shook cherished values, including long-held beliefs about the roles of men and women. Advertising executives responded by crafting and presenting idealized images of an American woman they thought everyone could love, a woman both desirable and chaste.
