'Sesame Street' teaches kids how to stand up to racism in new special

Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational arm of beloved children’s show Sesame Street, debuts a new special on Thursday, Oct. 15. Its purpose? Teaching children how to combat racism.

Following “Coming Together: Standing up to Racism Town Hall,” a joint venture between CNN and Sesame Street that aired in June, “The Power of We: A Sesame Street Special” continues the conversation of race with children and families, this time through songs that empower children to be “color-proud.”

We are proud to announce The Power of We: A Sesame Street Special! Designed as a co-viewing experience for children and families, The Power of We addresses racism and models how children can stand up to it. Watch Thursday, October 15 on @hbomax & @PBSKIDS#ComingTogether
