Sesame Street And CNN Team Up To Tackle Racism

Sesame Street And CNN Team Up To Tackle Racism

We could all use a lesson from the Big Bird.

On Saturday, June 6th at 10am ET Sesame Street and CNN will be hosting a town hall. The event, titled Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism, is a 60-minute special for kids and families to discuss the topic of racism.

Join The Conversation

Big Bird and CNN's Van Jones and Erica Hill will serve as moderators. Elmo, Abby Cadabby, Rosita will be joined by special experts to answer questions sent in by families.

Official Statement

The long-running PBS show has tackled many critical themes in the past. Back in April, Sesame Street and CNN teamed up for their first town hall to discuss the coronavirus pandemic with children and their families.

Without requiring a cable log-in, the special will also be available to stream live on CNN's homepage and mobile devices. CNN International and CNN en Español will also stream the town hall. Audiences can watch on CNNgo and subscribers to cable/satellite systems will be able to watch on-demand.

Be sure to tune with your family to help all of us understand what is going on around the nation.
