President Joe Biden will host members of the Congressional Black Caucus at the White House on Thursday to discuss police reform legislation as congressional lawmakers look to revisit the issue following the death of Tyre Nichols, a Black man who was fatally beaten by Memphis, Tennessee, police officers.

Biden spoke to CBC Chairman Steven Horsford on Monday and will meet with him and other caucus members to “discuss police reform legislation and other shared priorities,” White House spokeswoman Olivia Dalton told reporters on Air Force One en route to New York on Tuesday.
