Today, at 2 p.m. we are joining more than 150 radio stations across the country to simultaneously play Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” to honor George Floyd. The song was written half a century ago. Playing it now is a reminder that sometimes change doesn’t come. But this is hoping, that if we come together, maybe change will come.

George Floyd will be laid to rest at a private ceremony in Houston today. His death on 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.

The song will play at 3 p.m. Eastern, 2 p.m. Central, 1 p.m. Mountain, 12 p.m. Pacific, 11 a.m. Alaska, and 9 a.m. Hawaii.
