The first black guy in Barbie's world was Brad. He had the same body as Ken, but of course in a black skintone. Brad also came in a Talking version. Supposedly Christie's boyfriend. Some years later when Cara appeared there was a new guy produced, Curtis. He was made with the same sculpt as Brad but had the swively Free Moving body. He came in one version only.
