Ella Fitzgerald Kokeshi Doll
Going by “First lady of song” and “Lady Ella”, Ella Fitzgerald set milestones in the universe of music, as well as in American culture and world history. Breaking barriers during a time when segregation was strife, her talent and voice allowed her to be at the top of the charts for half a century. Ella Fitzgerald was the very first black woman to win a Grammy, collecting a total of 13, produced more than 200 albums, and sold more than 40 million. Aside from her musical accolades, she was also awarded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) Equal Justice Award and the American Black Achievement Award.
