Sesame Street was the brainchild of Charles Dickens, who would later make the classic short-lived cartoon show.
But it was the 1960s that made it a cultural phenomenon.
Sesame Workshop, the company that produces the show, had grown to become the world’s biggest media and educational institution, with schools across the US and UK teaching children its lessons.
So it was a natural fit for the world-famous children’s programme to launch a new series in the US.
And the show did so, at least in part, thanks to the popularity of the popular children’s film Sesame.
The film is one of the most enduring children’s films of all time.
It won a Grand Prix in 1981 for best children’s movie.
Sixty years on, the film’s legacy has made it even more famous, as it has made the rounds on cable television, online and in cinemas.
In 2016, Sesame’s 50th anniversary, it won the prestigious British Academy of Film and Television Arts’ film award for Best Animated Feature.
The story of Sesame and Friends, which ran from 1964 to 1977, is a story of friendship, friendship, and friendship again.
It tells the story of two little boys, Al and Bert, who find themselves in the middle of an American civil rights movement, as they attempt to bring together the children of the South and the North.
In its opening episode, Al, who is Black, becomes the “leader” of the group, while Bert, White, and the rest of the children find themselves forced to choose sides in the conflict.
Al’s journey from the “good side” to the “bad side” is one that’s familiar to anyone who has watched the classic television series, The Flintstones.
Al and his family are raised by his Uncle, a wealthy plantation owner, but he’s also had to face racial discrimination from other plantation owners.
Al was ostracised from school for wearing a hat and being a Black man, and he’s ostracized from the neighborhood because of his skin colour.
He and his friends, the Sesame Kids, are given the choice to either become Sesame Workers or join their parents’ efforts to get a better education for all of their children.
Bert, a Black boy, is the “outcast”, the “sissy” and the “loser”, who spends most of his time sitting in the corner and playing with the kids, playing with his toy train and being lazy.
Al is the underdog, and Bert is the leader, and they try to be the best and be the smartest.
But they can’t be both.
Sometime in the early 1970s, a group of white parents, led by a white man, decide to turn their home of Birmingham, Alabama, into a “southern utopia” and to give all the children the opportunity to learn.
They decided to send their children to the public schools in the suburbs, and to create a school for the children that was more diverse than the public ones.
Their children would attend schools that were predominantly white, with the Black and Brown kids in particular getting to know the teachers from the public school.
In return, the parents were given access to the facilities, facilities and equipment that they needed to run their own schools.
The children would also attend private schools where the teachers were also from the Black community.
The teachers and their families were called “sisters”, and the children would spend time with them.
The school was called “Sesame Workshop”.
The children were told to name their principal, and a teacher would be sent to each home to do homework for the teachers, to ensure that all the students got the information that they need to succeed.
When the children were about to start their first day of school, one of them was called Bert, because his name came up during a meeting that was about to be held between the parents.
“Bert’s a Black girl,” the teacher said, according to a transcript of the meeting that’s now in the Smithsonian Institution Library.
“Her name is Al, and she’s the ‘leader’.
We have to give her the benefit of the doubt.”
Bert, the eldest of the Siblings, is referred to as Al the “Black kid”.
She’s a “little white girl”.
The teachers were shocked when they learned that Al’s name was also used as a slur by one of their Black students.
Al, the Black child, was called Al, by a teacher who said she was “white”.
“I was like, ‘What is that?
You’re talking about me?'”
Bert, Al the Black kid, recalls, as she walks down a corridor with a white teacher.
“I can’t believe it,” she says.
“And I don’t know if I should be mad at them, because it’s not like I’m going to hurt them, but I feel really hurt.
I don, like, go up and ask them to explain it
