Today's musical selection comes from our friends at Sesame Street. I've now seen this clip about a puppet who loves her Black hair only about a million times on Facebook, Twitter, Youtube and sent to me in my inbox. And one million times is not enough. I love it and am so thrilled that the folks at Children's Television Workshop decided to tackle this very serious self-love identity issue on their show.
So without further ado, enjoy my new favorite song, "I Love My Hair."
What do you think about the video/song? Of course when we talk Black hair, there always has to be a dissenting opinion. Here's one such opinion by a guy who thinks some of the hairstyles our little muppet friend wears aren't really natural. (sigh)
What do you think dear readers?
I'm listening... while I love my hair.
