‘Sesame Street’ Will Join CNN Town Hall This Weekend To Help Speak Out Against Racism

Will you be tuning in?

Racism has no place on any street — including Sesame Street. That’s the message the beloved children’s show shared on social media this week in the wake of the death of George Floyd and nationwide protests.

“Sesame Street was built on diversity, inclusion, and, especially, kindness,” reads a statement. “Today and every day we stand together with our Black colleagues, partners, collaborators and the entire Black community. We stand with our friends around the globe to speak out against racism, to promote understanding, and to create a world that is smarter, stronger, and kinder.”
