Sesame Street Celebrates 45 Years
Posted by Cait
In honor of Sesame Street‘s 45th season on public television, we invited Dr. Jennifer Kotler Clarke, Vice President, Research & Evaluation, Sesame Workshop, to author a guest blog, “Sesame Street Celebrates 45 Years,” with our community. We hope you’ll enjoy her expert insight on what goes into producing a new season of Sesame Street that addresses the changing needs of our nation’s early learners.

'Cairo Solidarity Rally', featuring Rev. Charles Koen, Church of the Advocate, Philadelphia, 1971. Charles Koen was a leader of Black Liberators in Cairo, Illinois. This speaking event was co-sponsored the Black Workers Congress (a Marxist-Leninist organization that arose from Detroit’s League of Revolutionary Black Workers), Black Economic Devolpment Conference (associated with BWC leader and SNCC veteran James Forman), West Philadelphia NAACP and the Council of Black Clergy. The Church of the Advocate in North Philadelphia is still at the center of activism in the Black community today.
Grace Jones in all her splendor.
this is a war-cry from 60 years ago that is still being shouted today.
Some cry for justice cause their definitions of self and success are wrapped in the American dream being a reality
But anyone with eyes to see
who wants to see even the painful truths
know it’s always been white lies shaping our nightmares.
Some cry and fight for justice cause we know the system was never designed for us
and on our way to building a new way
we can’t just lay down and allow you…
