Calendar/Event Details

Editor's note: This town hall is available to watch at any time. 

As anger and heartbreak have swept across America over the killing of yet another black man at the hands of police, CNN and "Sesame Street" are refocusing their second town hall to address racism.

The 60-minute special "Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism. A CNN/Sesame Street Town Hall for Kids and Families" aired on June 6. It is now available to view at any time on the website.

The show talks to kids about racism, the recent nationwide protests, embracing diversity and being more empathetic and understanding.

Big Bird joins CNN commentator Van Jones and CNN anchor and national correspondent Erica Hill to moderate the event. They are joined by "Sesame Street" characters -- including Elmo, Abby Cadabby and Rosita -- and other experts and answer questions submitted by families.
