The below story is an excerpt from the comic book Stitching Together.
Annie's note: I regret the white saviorism I see in the Sesame Street scene of this 2008 comic. I feel uncomfortable with the generalized characters of color placed in the margins of the narrative to illuminate the contributions of a white person. I apologize to anyone I may have alienated with this treatment. In the stories I’m creating now, I’m working to actively include protagonists of color, especially in my fiction, in which I have more leeway than in nonfiction or adaptation work.
