Alabama man continues 1,000-mile justice walk to Minneapolis with stop in Louisville

Terry Willis is marching by foot to the spot where George Floyd lost his life in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) – An Alabama man is on his 1,000-mile trek to Minnesota, walking to the exact spot where George Floyd lost his life.

Terry Willis arrived in Louisville Sunday and walked with a group from 26th and West Broadway to the steps of Metro Hall.

“I appreciate you guys who just walked 20 blocks with me. I love you guys more than you know, and the reason why I can continue to go is because of this,” Willis said.

Willis has marched more than 250-miles so far and Louisville was one of many stops he’s making on his journey.

Those with him told WHAS11 News he visited the location where David McAtee was killed and later visited Breonna Taylor’s apartment.

A GoFundMe has been created while he continues his trek up north. Click here for more information.
