Services Held For George Floyd This Week and Next

There will be many memorial services to honor and celebrate the life of George Floyd, the black man who died as a result of excessive police brutality by a white officer while in custody last month.

Thursday there will be a memorial in Minneapolis, the city where the killing took place. On Saturday there will be another service in North Carolina where he was born, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

A public viewing takes place at The Fountain of Praise Church on June 8 in Houston, Texas where Floyd grew up in Third Ward and the following day, June 9, the funeral will be at the same church. Officials are saying the funeral will be a ticketed event.

Boxer Floyd Mayweather will be covering the costs of George Floyd's funeral.
