A black woman’s hair can be short, long, spiked, tamed, kinked, curled, straight… but it seems as if most black women rock a chemical processed European swag because that’s what society claims is the right way to look. Sesame Street decided they are not feeding into the bullsh*zzz anymore… They want little black girls to love themselves, so they put together a little something and it goes like this:

    this was made me smile!black women should have more pride in their hair.

    • MeohMY

      lol, ITA I could not smiling. And it’s weird, you would think BET or some other “black” enterprise would do something like this, but we seem to perpetuate everything but.

      Even when you look at the tv shows featuring little black girls, or tweens–they all have weaves (unless they are biracial). Its tough to really help a little girl feel good about herself when almost all the people who look like her are wearing someone else’s hair, or texture.

    The only thing that missing from this is Will Smiths daughter Willow’s version ‘I wip my hair’!

    Real talk though, it kind of sounds like her singing this no!??

    • denne

      i was thinking the same thing… it probably is her. you know sesame street doesn’t autotune…

    I wish they had this on sesame street when I was a little girl ;,-) Simple as it may seem, it had a profound political and social message!

  • Blacqberry

    Absolutely adorable. Great message for my baby sistas out there.

    And the singer does sound like Will and Jada daughter Willow.

    The little girl singing is Chauncey Johnson. She was also the voice of Nala in The Lion King.

    I love that Seasame Street addressed this issue! It’s so important that little girls of all races feel good about themselves w/o the pressures of society. Beauty should inclusive, not exclusive.
