Did you grow up watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood? Do remember the trolley or King Friday? That red cardigan? The opening song? The show debuted on February 19, 1968 and aired through 2001, so it’s safe to say that generations of kids have grown up watching the more than 870 episodes created by Fred Rogers, who died in 2003. Fred Rogers was infinitely passionate about childhood education and using television as a tool to affirm children’s self-worth and offer them a place where they felt accepted and understood. In this episode, we feature Shea Tuttle, the author of the forthcoming book "In Search of Mister Rogers."
Shea Tuttle is the co-editor of "Can I Get a Witness? Thirteen Peacemakers, Community Builders, and Agitators for Faith and Justice" and the forthcoming book, "In Search of Mister Rogers." Learn more at https://sheatuttle.contently.com/.
