The clip features children playing renowned CNN journalists and correspondents, including Don Lemon, Angela Rye, Symone Sanders, April Ryan and Bakari Sellers.
During the segment, the fun-sized influencers raved about inspirational black figures from Serena Williams and Ava DuVernay to Shea Moisture founder Richelieu Dennis and fashion trailblazer Dapper Dan.
“Black excellence is at an all-time high,” the child playing Lemon said.
They also highlighted the successes of black cinema, including “Black Panther,” out Feb. 16, “A Wrinkle In Time,” out in March; “Hidden Figures;” “Girls Trip;” and “Get Out.”
To end the skit, the children declared that “black folks have always been dope and always will be dope.”
There was a time when you wouldn’t have seen anyone that looks like us on tv, but because of some trailblazing folks that came waaay before us....today, we can. ❤️✊🏾 #BlackHistoryMonthhttps://t.co/4V0jzpltea
