How the new Sesame Street character is becoming widespread
I didn’t post the original video because by the time everyone started posting it within the past week or so, I had seen it weeks before when it debuted on The Wendy Williams show…Plus it was on EVERY blog and every #naturalhair tweet had the link so it was on overload so I felt I didn’t need to post. But what I am surprised at, is the behind the scenes. One of the writers for Sesame Street that came up with this has an Ethiopian daughter with curly hair (he is white). I love the inspiration for this character and song. I also love the fact that is spreading so much. I appreciate that they are talking about it on mainstream TV and not just BET, Vh1. This video can help alot of children, not just black, deal with their differences. Check out this recent news piece.
