'Sesame Street' Is Hosting a CNN Town Hall for Kids Addressing Racism

Following the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police, nationwide protests continue. Important conversations about racism are happening everywhere, fueled by anger and heartbreak.

To help parents explain racism to their kids, Sesame Street and CNN are hosting their second town hall that will focus on racism—the first aired in April and discussed the Coronavirus pandemic.

Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism. A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall for Kids and Families will talk to kids and families about racism, the protests, and how to embrace diversity and be more understanding and empathetic.

The discussion will be led by Big Bird, CNN commentator Van Jones, and CNN anchor and national correspondent Erica Hill. Other Sesame Street characters will join the talk, along with experts who will answer questions submitted by families.

Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism. A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall for Kids and Families will air on Saturday, June 6, at 10 a.m. ET. It can be viewed on CNN, CNN International, CNN en Español, CNNgo, and on-demand. It will also stream live on the CNN.com homepage and on the CNN app without requiring a cable log-in.
