David Kamp’s nostalgic, thought-provoking romp through 1970s kids’ TV programs will remind you that American television once served the public good. Creators such as Joan Ganz Cooney, Jim Henson, Fred Rogers and David McCall channeled their 1970s activism into TV shows that sought to enlighten, entertain, motivate and educate young children. Sesame Street shifted paradigms by emphasizing diversity and exposing inequality. The Electric Company, Zoom, Free to Be…You and Me and Schoolhouse Rock! reflect the era’s exuberance, audacity and belief that children are the future.
