PITTSBURGH (Newsradio 1020 KDKA) - Concerned clergy and community members rallied in the Hill District Monday afternoon, protesting institutional racism.

“Say his name” said the several hundred marchers who made their way down Centre Avenue from Freedom Corner in the Hill District to Grant Street Downtown.

They remembered George Floyd and other young black men who have been killed at the hands of police.

They say they don’t condone the voice of this past weekend but they’re here, they stay to try to explain it and end it.

The peaceful protest saw people singing and praying for Floyd.

One of the speakers was Reverend Glenn Grayson.

“As he cried out, for his life, for nine minutes as an officer put his officer knee on his neck, ‘I can’t breathe’, tell someone I can’t breathe,” said Grayson.
