A star-studded COVID-19 relief concert initially slated to air next week is being postponed in light of countrywide protests following George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police.
Organizers All In WA announced Thursday that the concert will now air 7 p.m. June 24.
“We recognize the pain and injustice the Black and African American community is facing, once again, and the need to honor the ongoing marches, protests, and organizing,” All In WA organizers wrote in a news release. “We also want to give space for our community to focus on what matters most at the moment; acknowledging and addressing systemic racism and violence that dehumanizes Black people and families, and taking steps to rebuild to a new reality.”
