Sesame Street’s Racial Justice Curriculum Begins With Infants

The nonprofit behind the iconic children’s show Sesame Street has created a “racial literacy” curriculum to expose young kids and their parents to key tenets of “anti-racist” ideology.

“Coming Together” by Sesame Workshop began in 2020 and is made up of videos, handouts and children’s books for parents to teach their kids the “ABC’s of racial literacy,” according to the nonprofit’s website. The program says children are “never too young” to learn about racism, which starts with infants because they begin to develop “preference for the faces of people from their own racial group.”

These ideas resemble those put forward by “anti-racist” writers like Ibram X. Kendi, who released a children’s picture book in 2020 after the death of George Floyd. Titled “Antiracist Baby,” the book encourages conversations with children about racism, especially for parents who think their child is “color-blind,” the Harvard Gazette reported.

Kendi said if racism isn’t addressed by age 2, kids may be “a lost cause” to racism by 10 or 15 years of age. (Read more from “Sesame Street’s Racial Justice Curriculum Begins With Infants” HERE)
