Sojourner Truth primitive folk art doll. Because the tag looks modern I think this is modern. On Etsy you can find a pattern to make a similar doll. https://www.etsy.com/listing/58552908/sojourner-truth-a-primitive-patter...
I wonder if this pattern is based on some art that goes back further in history.
There’s also a version close to this on Pinterest that was sold on Etsy for around $33
Note, I’m guessing that’s it’s a modern doll made to look like primitive folk art but it could be real so more research is needed.
Again not sure but the maker of your doll might be Erin Primovic.
