A Doll Like Me

Debra Britt says it took more than fifty years of looking and collecting, but she finally found a doll that looks like her. As she describes it, the doll is black, round and has a gap in her teeth. She talks with guest host Sean Cole about what got her started collecting and how the thousands of dolls she owns now make up one of the few black doll museums in the country.
