- A bright blue-and-green houndstooth

The Melody Ellison doll, representing the civil rights era, marks her place in history as the third African-American doll from the company's BeForever line. American Girl's newest historical character Melody Ellison—civil rights believer, chorus leader, and daughter of Detroit—hits the scene and inspires girls and their families to be a force for positive growth and change. With hope, enthusiasm, and a solid sense of fairness, 9-year-old Melody provides a glimpse of life during the 1960s—a significant decade for the civil rights movement in America and a time of great energy, optimism, challenges, and change. With the struggle for equality and justice still prevalent today, Melody bridges the past and present for girls and shows them how ordinary people can do extraordinary things when they come together to make a meaningful difference.
Includes the paperback book No Ordinary Sound, the first book of Melody’s stories, abridged and richly illustrated in full color.
