Sesame Workshop — the nonprofit, educational organization behind “Sesame Street” — will air the half-hour anti-racist special “The Power of We” and hopes families will watch together.
The special tackles racism for younger viewers and explains how it can be hurtful. It tells kids who exprience racism or hear someone else be the victim of it to call it out. “When you see something that’s wrong, speak up and say, ‘That’s wrong’ and tell an adult,” 6-year-old Gabrielle the Muppet advises.
The special will stream on HBO Max and PBS Kids and air on PBS stations beginning Oct. 15..
