Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street (Michael Davis)

Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street
Michael Davis

Blurb: One evening in early 1966 a group of friends were gathered at a Manhattan dinner party, where the conversation turned to a subject a number of them had been thinking about: Why couldn't television be used to teach children? Suddenly, one of the most influential, durable, and beloved shows in the history of broadcasting was born.

Michael Davis's Street Gang unfolds the never-before-told saga behind Sesame Street: the miraculously improbably alchemy that brought a passionate team together, and kept them going through four decades of social change and the backstage dram behind a television show that had always appeared effortless. Street Gang is a story of a crusade, one that has already influenced four generations of children - and one that will remain a part of childhood for generations to come.
