Sesame Street did a town hall on CNN about racism. It was VERY powerful. This is a great way to explain racism to kids and what to do when they encounter it. There is one clip where Elmo talks to his dad Louie and asked him about what is going right now. Louie explains to Elmo about racism. Not going to lie this video made me cry. Seeing so many people stand up and fight against racism is inspiring. Having Sesame Street explain it to kids is an amazing way to teach a lesson that should have been taught so many years ago. We need to have these awkward conversations and keep having these conversations.
