We over at BlackGlamourMom love ‘Sesame Street!’ As a mother of a two-year-old I spend lots of time opening and closing various ‘Sesame Street’ apps on my phone as well as turning on PBS for my son to watch one of his favorite characters, Elmo. I can admit that I am not a big fan of television. To be perfectly honest I don’t watch much of it, so it should come as no surprise that I choose to also limit the amount of TV that I do allow my son to watch. Lucky for him, ‘Sesame Street’ happens to be one of the few programs that I do share with him.
So of course you can imagine my reaction when I found out that Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o had paid a visit to ‘Sesame Street.” The actress chats with Elmo about skin and the importance of loving the skin that you’re in.
During the segment Nyong’o explains that we all need skin to feel things and be ticklish. “Skin comes in lots of beautiful shades and colors,” she tells Elmo. “You know what, Miss Lupita?” says Elmo. “Elmo loves the skin he’s in.”
As an aunt to two nieces, I love the message that Lupita and Elmo are sharing. This is definitely a piece that I will be sharing with them.
Congrats to Lupita for making her debut on the famed show.

Glams, what do you think? Do you love the message that Lupita is sharing on ‘Sesame Street?’
