Sesame Street in Communities Racial Justice Initiative

Category: Documentary Series



An Emmy-nominated five-part doc series for the Racial Justice Initiative for Sesame Street in Communities, focusing on real families having difficult conversations about race. Meerkat Media produced the series entirely in-house, from casting to post-production, to create engaging, artful short films.
Watching other families have honest, age-appropriate conversations about race can help inspire new ideas for talking about these important topics at home. Visit @SesameStreetinCommunities to learn more: #ComingTogether
