Julie and the Doll illustrates the racial divide prevalent in American communities. Similarly, the photographer Gordon Parks captured this divide in his photographs for Ebony magazine, documenting a social experiment wherein African American children were asked to choose between black and white dolls. The results of this experiment assisted in the Supreme Court's monumental decision in Brown v. Board of Education that required the racial integration of American public schools in 1954.
