CONCORD, N.C. — Saturday, a group of people gathered in Concord to honor George Floyd's life and send a message for justice. It comes nearly three weeks since Floyd's death, as protests continue across the country.
The event, called a Cabarrus County Community March, was put on by Duke Basketball star and Cox Mill High School alumnus Wendell Moore Jr. and his girlfriend Marissa Moyer.
It started in James L. Dorton Park in Concord at noon. The peaceful protest continued until around 2:30 p.m., as the group marched through parts of Concord.
"I would say there's probably systemic racism everywhere, it's not just a nationwide — it's a worldwide issue," Moyer told WCNC Charlotte.
