If you’re wondering how to discuss racism and the current state of our country and world with your children, CNN and Sesame Street will host a town hall presentation to address the issue of racism and it may help you start a dialogue with your children about these important topics. It could also serve as a useful addition to some tough conversations many families are already having. The 60-minute special, Coming Together: Standing Up to Racism, will air tomorrow, Saturday, June 6, at 10 a.m. EST on CNN.
The town hall special will be a resource for kids and families. It will educate all ages on racism, discuss recent nationwide protests, celebrate diversity and delve into how everyone can be more understanding, empathetic and accepting.
Big Bird, CNN commentator Van Jones and CNN anchor and national correspondent Erica Hill will moderate the event — expect to see many Sesame Street characters join in the discussion, including Elmo, Rosita and Abby Cadabby. The show will also enlist the help of experts to answer questions submitted by families (link here to ask a question).
CNN and Sesame Street previously hosted a town hall in April, discussing COVID-19, which can be viewed here.
The town hall special also streams live here, on mobile devices with CNN’s apps and on CNNgo.

THE BEGINNING OF AUTUMN in America offers a time to savor the last precious moments of summer against the countryside’s mosaic of reds, yellows, oranges and purples. Before long, the chill of winter will enter the air and the trees will grow barren. This is not news to most of us. Indeed, leaf peeping has become ubiquitous. Most states have 24-hour toll-free hotlines to keep you informed of nature’s progress ... and then there’s the traffic. It seems the entire population of New York City and Boston climbs behind the wheels of cars on congested New England roadways. Thus we’ve tried to avoid the mainstream routes so you can truly appreciate the kaleidoscopic splendor. After all, a fall foliage road trip provides more than a mere drive. It also incorporates picking apples, tasting cider and hot doughnuts and leaving your vehicle behind to take a much-needed scenic walk to a lonely waterfall, where autumn’s colors reflect off the water.
