Little Kids Make Black History Month Newscast
Someone Get These Kids Awards For Their Adorable "Newscast" About Black History Month
To kick off the Black History Month celebrations, five young kids teamed up to deliver a CNN-style "breaking news" segment about black excellence, and it's the cutest darn thing you'll see all
day year. Because of Them We Can, a movement aimed at educating younger generations about those who have paved the way before them, shared the faux newscast on YouTube and Facebook, the latter of which saw dozens of shares and comments from ecstatic viewers.
In the video, each of the five kiddos dressed up like popular political analysts, including April Ryan and Don Lemon, and took turns highlighting prominent black figures across various industries, such as Serena Williams, Issa Rae, and Dapper Dan. They also mentioned a handful of recent and upcoming films featuring and directed by black stars, including Black Panther, Ava DuVernay's A Wrinkle in Time, and Hidden Figures.
At one point in the newscast, a young girl said, "Listen, black folks have always been dope and always will be dope," and another chimed in, "Ain't nothing fake about that news." Hah! Watch the entire segment above for your daily dose of smiles.
