‘Sesame Street’ joins CNN to discuss racism Saturday, June 6

Just a few weeks ago, CNN teamed up with “Sesame Street” on a town hall to discuss the novel coronavirus targeting children.

Now, this Saturday on June 6, as the country is roiled by protests over police brutality after the death of George Floyd on Memorial Day, they are joining up again this Saturday at 10 a.m. to talk about race.

According to CNN, the show will be hosted by commentator Van Jones and CNN anchor and reporter Erica Hill along with Big Bird. Several of Big Bird’s colleagues will join in, including Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Rosita. 

Topics they plan to raise include racism, the protests, diversity and embracing empathy and understanding.

The town hall will be available on the CNN app and website without need for cable log-in and will be available on demand after the fact.
