Subject: Need more information about a black doll I have

I purchased a black doll and it was referred to as a Tar Baby. She is 9 1/2" tall, porcelain? head and hands, stuffed with straw, human wisps of black hair glued on her head, primitive soiled dress. I can feel hard high shoes or boots under the leggings that are over the feet and legs. A doll appraiser told me she is authentic, but I cannot find any information. Is Tar Baby the correct name? All she knew was that the slave children received the hand me down dolls from the owners, they were then painted black and the hair put on. Any more info would help. Thanks.
