A new series from the Obamas aims to teach civics through music

A delightful new trailer is here for “We the People,” an animated musical show set to air on Netflix, executive produced by former President Barack and Michelle Obama.

“The show combines music and animation to educate a new generation of young Americans about the power of the people,” a description for the show reads.

“We the People” will feature a series of 10 music videos that cover a range of civics lessons tailored toward young people.

Artists included in the series are H.E.R., Janelle Monáe, Brandi Carlile, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Adam Lambert, Cordae, Bebe Rexha, KYLE, Andra Day and poet Amanda Gorman.

The show was created by Chris Nee, and along with the Obamas, was executive produced by Tonia Davis, Priya Swaminathan and Kenya Barris.

AFI DOCS will host the world premiere of “We the People” with a free screening event in the DOCS Talks section of the film festival on June 24.

The show will premiere on Netflix on July 4.
