Sesame Street revisits their best clips in honor of Black History Month
If you’ve been looking for a good way to celebrate diversity with your very youngest kids during Black History Month (and well, every single month), a great place to start is Sesame Street.
Our favorite kids’ show has been celebrating diversity from episode number one, and this month their YouTube channel is highlighting a great selection of clips in honor of Black History Month that your kids will love. From from old school clips with Maya Angelou to Hamilton’s Daveed Diggs, these are just some of the clips from the Sesame Street YouTube playlist celebrating Black History Month, with some of our very favorite guest stars.
Ray Charles sings Believe in Yourself with Elmo, giving kids a little does of inspiration and self-confidence.
Lupita Nyong’o loves her skin as every woman, man, and child should.
We just can’t get enough of Hamilton these days, and this short clip of Daveed Diggs singing — and rapping — Rubber Duckie is amazing.
Even though there’s no guest celebrity in this short video, we love the empowering message in this fun I Love My Hair video by the muppet Segi, who’s inspired by the writer’s Ethiopian daughter.
Sesame Street is for kids and you may think it’s nothing important, but kids are important. As we said multiple times, kids are our future and it’s great to see something big like Sesame Street honoring Black History Month. More clips you can check from their YouTube channel.
