JUNE 9: Jazz 91.9 WCLK to honor George Floyd

Colossal Art & Design

On Tuesday, June 9 at 3:00 p.m., Jazz 91.9 WCLK joins radio stations nationwide to play Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” in commemoration of the life of George Floyd.

Floyd’s gruesome killing May 25 has been the focus of international protests. Many communities are struggling with the issues raised by his death, including racial injustice and police misconduct. On June 9, Floyd will be laid to rest at a private ceremony in Houston, his hometown.

More than 60 participating stations will broadcast the Civil Rights Movement anthem at the same time that afternoon, coast-to-coast.  Tune into Jazz 91.9 WCLK on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. EST to be part of the observance.
