Sesame Street Holding Town Hall to Address Racism with Kids
While the protests taking place are continuing across the globe, we can't help but think about the children who don't understand the importance of the movement.
At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, Sesame Street hosted a town hall to address what was going on in ways children would be able to understand. On Saturday, June 6th, their next town hall will be about racism.
"Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism. A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall for Kids and Families" will air at 10 a.m. ET and will explain exactly what racism is, the recent nationwide protests, embracing diversity and being more empathetic and understanding.
Big Bird, Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Rosita will join CNN anchors and correspondents to moderate the town hall, and other experts answering questions submitted by families. If you have any particular questions, you can submit yours here at the bottom of the page.
The town hall will also stream live on CNN.com's homepage and across mobile devices via CNN's apps, and may be available on demand from your cable provider.
