This has been very good week on Sesame Street. Just a few days ago, Janelle Monae stopped by and and now Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong'o made an appearance.
Lupita chats with Elmo about why we should love our skin, and why she loves hers. It's an important message, particularly for little Black girls. Hearing Elmo fawn over Lupita's brown skin is a joy!
