For more than 50 years, Sesame Street has been the home of a
very diverse population. From a childlike red monster, a friendly yellow bird
and a green grouch to people of all ages, colors and occupations, the classic TV
show makes a concerted effort to depict everyone being treated with compassion
and respect. This year, there’s a new neighbor on Sesame Street – Elmo’s friend
Karli, a Muppet who is also a foster child.
