A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall for Kids and Families
As anger and heartbreak have swept across America over the killing of yet another black man at the hands of police, CNN and “Sesame Street” are refocusing their second town hall to address racism.
The 60-minute special “Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism. A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall for Kids and Families” aired on Saturday, June 6, at 10 a.m. ET.
The show talked to kids about racism, the recent nationwide protests, embracing diversity and being more empathetic and understanding.
Big Bird joined CNN commentator Van Jones and CNN anchor and national correspondent Erica Hill to moderate the event. They were joined by “Sesame Street” characters — including Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Rosita — and other experts answering questions submitted by families.
