During a special guest appearance on “Sesame Street” Academy Award-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o made us all proud.

During a skit with Elmo, Nyong’o talked about all of the great things about her skin. 

Watch the skit:

The highlight of the video is when the two name specific things that are wonderful about their skin. Elmo loves the fact that his skin is ticklish. Lupita’s skin is a beautiful brown color which they both love.

What an awesome promotion of self esteem Sesame Street.

Black is beautiful.
