‘Sesame Street’ Shares Powerful Message After George Floyd’s Death: “Racism Has No Place on Our Street”

Sesame Street is speaking up against racism. This week, the Sesame Street Instagram account shared a profound message urging viewers to practice “diversity, inclusion, and, especially, kindness” during these trying times. In addition to its moving message, CNN will be airing a special Sesame Street racism episode, Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism. The CNN and Sesame Street town hall will give children a space to discuss racism, the Black Lives Matter movement, and empathy in a forum guided by experts and parents.

On Monday, Sesame Street issued a message in support of Americans protesting George Floyd’s death. “Racism has no place on our Street — or on any street,” the Sesame Street racism message read. “Today and every day we stand together with our Black colleagues, partners, collaborators, and the entire Black community. We stand with friends around the globe to speak out against racism, to promote understanding, and to create a world that is smarter, stronger, and kinder.” On Saturday, CNN and Sesame Street will be airing a town hall event to “talk to kids about racism, the recent nationwide protests, embracing diversity and being more empathetic and understanding,” according to CNN. The 60-minute CNN/Sesame Street town hall will be hosted by Big Bird, anchor Van Jones, and correspondent Erica Hill and will feature a variety of different characters as they answer questions submitted by families across the country.

Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism is CNN’s second Sesame Street town hall this spring. The first, held in April, addressed the novel coronavirus pandemic and provided resources for parents attempting to explain the COVID-19 outbreak to their children.

The Sesame Street town hall airs this Saturday, June 6, at 10 a.m. ET. The special Sesame Street event will air on CNN, CNN International, and CNN en Español; it will also stream live on CNN.com’s homepage and through CNN’s apps for free, no cable log-in required.
