Radiologists were among the hundreds of healthcare workers who participated in "White Coats for Black Lives" events across the U.S. on 5 June.

During the events, residents, physicians, fellows, and other healthcare workers knelt for 8 minutes and 46 seconds, the length of time that a Minneapolis police officer knelt on the neck of George Floyd. Other healthcare workers stood and marched in solidarity.

Healthcare workers used the protest as a time to condemn racism and remember Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and other black lives lost.

Radiologists who participated in the event hailed from departments across the U.S., including the University of Virginia School of Medicine, Northwestern Medicine, University of Texas (UT) Southwestern Medical Center, Oregon Health & Science University, and Washington University of St. Louis. In addition, the radiology department from the University of Alabama at Birmingham noted it held a moment of silence at the beginning of a virtual celebration for graduates.
