This is so awesome. A friend of mine sent me the link to this YouTube video, and I thought, "Oh, cool, Sesame Street is ON IT!" and resolved to post about it. Then I saw it on Essence.com, and also heard about the special Essence hair issue (more on that later) and resolved to get that and blog about that as well. But just now I read about the story BEHIND the video, and it's so cool. See the story at NPR.org here.
