Introducing our new web series for youth!
South End Stories is overjoyed to premiere our new kids show SUNNYSIDE UP on YouTube. The show was created by Donte Felder and Queenie Sunshine as an educational vehicle to bring social emotional learning and academics to kindergarten, first, second, and third grade students. SUNNYSIDE UP serves positivity and relatability to their audience during quarantine. The show celebrates Black excellence by honoring the stories of African American heroes, heroines, and everyone in between. It aims to help children feel connected through positive engagement, emotional empowerment, and a sense of community.
Please watch with the young children in your life.
We hope you enjoy!
