Members of George Floyd's family and civil rights leaders led a remembrance rally and march in his honor in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Sunday — the first of three days of activities marking the first anniversary of his death.

The big picture: The George Floyd Memorial Foundation, founded by his sister Bridgett Floyd, said in a statement it's to "demonstrate our continued call for accountability and reform, because the right to equal justice should not be conditional or based upon a person's color."

  • Crowds gathered for the event outside the courthouse where Derek Chauvin, a white former Minneapolis police officer, was last month convicted of Floyd's May 25, 2020, murder. The killing sparked massive protests against police brutality and racism in the U.S. and across the world.

What they're saying: Civil rights leader the Rev. Al Sharpton said during a rally address: "George Floyd should not go down in history as just someone with a knee on his neck. George Floyd should go down in history that broke the neck of police racism, police brutality, and police illegality."

Study finds bias against Black patients written into medical charts

Black patients were more than two-and-a-half times as likely as white patients to have negative descriptors about them in their electronic health record, according to a study published Wednesday in Health Affairs.

Why it matters: The study is further evidence of bias in the U.S. health care system, which can ultimately result in worse care and disparately poor outcomes.
