Friday Question: Do you remember this Afro-Am clip from Sesame Street

A loaf of bread, a container of milk and a stick of butter.  OH my goodness.  I almost teared up when I saw this on YouTube.  As a child this was one of a few animations on Sesame Street that had black characters.  This was my FAVORITE!!!  I was that lil black girl going to the corner store for Mom, jamming to my own rhythm.  Sigh…I’m such a sap sometimes.

“From 1972, the classic animated segment about memory, which has done a pretty good job of sticking in the memories of a generation of Sesame Street viewers. Produced by Jim Simon’s Wantu Studios.”
