Meet Megan Piphus Peace: Sesame Street’s First Black Woman Puppeteer

The “Vanderbilt Ventriloquist” has found her way to Sesame Street as the show’s first Black woman puppeteer, and it is truly a historic moment.

It all started for Megan Piphus Peace at the age of 10, when she first learned about the art while attending a puppetry conference with her Vacation Bible School teacher in Illinois.  She immediately took a liking to the idea of ventriloquism, as she found familiarity by relating it to some of her beloved childhood TV shows like Sesame Street and Lamb Chop’s Play Along.
