Scheduled to air Saturday, “Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism” will be co-moderated by Big Bird, with CNN’s Van Jones and Erica Hill adding support.

The announcement of the program comes just days after Sesame Street released a statement in the wake of the death of George Floyd, a black man who died in police custody in Minneapolis last week.

Sesame Street says ‘Racism has no place on our Street — or on any street,’ will host a town hall with CNN on racism

Sesame Street, the long-running, PBS children’s show, shared a passionate message to its fans following the death of George Floyd and amid protests around the nation.

According to Popsugar, the statement was posted across Sesame Street’s official social media accounts, and begins with: “Racism has no place on our Street — or on any street. Sesame Street was built on diversity, inclusion, and, especially kindness.”

Since its debut in 1969, Sesame Street has endeavored to portray a community where everyone is welcome and treated with compassion, regardless of their skin color, family dynamic, background, abilities or interests.

Nothing against the Sesame Street crew, but CNN is a joke.
