to tv or not to tv: history + heritage on nick jr.

to tv: I appreciate that Nick Jr. teaches and celebrates diversity.  For Black History Month, I was thrilled to see them honor Dr. Alexa Canady!  She is not only one of my hometown’s (#lovelansing) most notable history makers, but also one of my childhood role models: Celebrating Dr. Alexa Canady.

not to tv:  It’s hard to support networks, particularly those with children’s programming, that don’t use their broad influence to go beyond simple entertainment and create fun teachable moments on culture, history, science, technology and the arts.  No moment spent teaching our kids something–anything–new is wasted!
