Sesame Street Dad by Roscoe Orman

Book Description

This book, which I hope conveys the spiritual tenor of my times as well as the philosophical and educational enrichment I have received within them, is a distinctly personal account and interpretation of my life experiences that may also serve as a lasting record of the events described, many of which have historical significance beyond my own personal story. The four decades that my career has thus far spanned encompass a period of change that is unprecedented in the history of American society. Certainly, my three decades as Gordon on Sesame Street have provided one of the most enriching and edifying stories of my life. If I could boast of no other major career accomplishment, having played a central role as I have in the development and continuation of this landmark series would alone have made my life sufficiently meaningful. The historical significance of Sesame Street and its surprising longevity have made my association with the show, in many regards, my life's crowning achievement. Reviewing the entirety of my career, however, has given me an opportunity to examine the political, moral, social, cultural, and artistic connections and influences that have defined all its aspects. Within the realm of theater, for instance, it is clear that my early affiliations with The Free Southern Theater of New Orleans and The New Lafayette Theatre of Harlem between the mid-1960s and the early 1970s have been, arguably, even more influential in defining the content of my personal character and my life's work than have my many years as Gordon. Given that each new age must follow a course suited to its own current demands, I offer my story in a spirit of generosity, joy, hope, and compassion as a voice from the recent past and present to the open ears of the future.
