Blackout Tuesday – The Show Must Be Paused
Club 93.7 is observing Blackout Tuesday to honor the memory of George Floyd, and stand against racism and inequality in America.
Our social media pages will be silent today as well as our personalities on air, but we will continue working to engage our listeners.
This has been a tragic time for most of us with so many unbelievable events taking place before us. The pandemic and the floods were already ravaging most of us in Michigan when George FLoyd was murdered by Minneapolis Police. The outrage that his murder caused was too much for us to take right now. The emotional stress most of us are already under is only amplified if you are a person of color. The anger, confusion, and array of emotions that we all feel right now can be overwhelming.
Blackout Tuesday started as the music industry's response to the racial injustice in America going on right now, but I think many will use it as a day of emotional healing.
However you spend the day today, please realize that you are not dealing with this alone.
