Barack and Michelle Obama Are Bringing a 'Civics Remix' in New Kids Series for Netflix




snip

Between various media appearances, books and series, this presidential couple is definitely doing their part in redefining what life at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue can look like—and their latest Netflix project is no exception.

Per a press release sent to The Root, We the People is set to teach kids all about American civics as well as empower and “educate a new generation of young Americans about the power of the people.” Spanning across ten animated music videos, the former president and first lady also tapped a handful of creatives and musicians to help bring the sometimes tedious tidbits of U.S. civics from somber to showstopping. Those artists include H.E.R., Janelle Monáe, Cordae, Daveed Diggs, Andra Day, poet Amanda Gorman, KYLE, Brandi Carlisle, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Bebe Rexha and Adam Lambert. The series serves as “an exuberant call to action for everyone to rethink civics as a living, breathing thing and to reframe their understanding of what government and citizenship mean in a modern world.”

It would be impossible for me to admire and love these two more than I already do.

2. Excellent. There needs to be a massive effort to inform Americans about civics.

This is a great start.

3. Hopefully, adults will watch it, too.

Unfortunately, the ones who need it most won't be bothered with it.
