Family, friends, and African Americans from across the globe will continue paying their respects toward George Floyd in three cities. The first memorial service will take place on Thursday, June 4, 2020, in Minneapolis at North Central University’s Frank J. Lindquist Sanctuary. Rev. Al Sharpton is set to deliver a “national eulogy,” and one of the Floyd family attorneys, Ben Crump, will give a national criminal justice address. The service will commence at 1 p.m. local time.
The second memorial service will happen on June 6, 2020, in Raeford, North Carolina, at Cape Fear Conference B Headquarters. This area happens to be where Floyd was born as well. A public viewing will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time, and the memorial service will start at 3 p.m.
Two days after this, Floyd will have another memorial service in Houston, Texas, where he previously lived. A public visitation will occur at The Fountain of Praise on Hillcroft Avenue from noon to 6 p.m. local time.
Floyd Mayweather took part in the movement by paying for the funeral expenses, Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, told ABC News on Tuesday. Ellerbe also confirmed that the Floyd family took the offer. Another private funeral service will be held at the same location on June 9 at 11 a.m. local time. Joe Biden is reportedly expected to attend.
If you would still like to donate to Floyd’s funeral and burial costs, his family has set up a GoFundMe page.
