Callie Crossley Commentary

WGBH News' Callie Crossley poses with part of her black Santa collection.

I was thrilled when I spotted him. A ceramic potbellied Santa frozen in mid stride on a glazed platform—one clay hand holding a bag stuffed with gifts and the other ringing a bell. The diminutive glossy painted Santa stood out from all the other holiday decorations because he was black. This was my first black Santa, and I couldn’t take my eyes off him.
