Jamal from the Soul Train wave.

Jamal was a character from the short-lived AA centric doll line The Marvelous World of Shani. Jamal was introduced one year after the line's debut in 1992, as a boyfriend for the Shani character. After the line's cancellation, Jamal's face sculpt would be used rather frequently for Barbie's black friends Curtis and Steven, and for black version's of Ken.
