Family, friends and supporters of George Floyd will honor his memory in three cities starting on Thursday.
Floyd died on May 25 after being apprehended by police, as seen in a video that quickly spread across the nation, prompting over a week of demonstrations against police violence and racism.
The first memorial service will be on June 4 in Minneapolis at North Central University's Frank J. Lindquist Sanctuary, where Rev. Al Sharpton will deliver a "national eulogy" and one of the Floyd family attorneys, Ben Crump, will give a "national criminal justice address." The service will begin at 1 p.m. local time.
Another memorial service will be held on June 6 in Raeford, North Carolina, the state where Floyd was born, at Cape Fear Conference B Headquarters. A public viewing will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. local time and a memorial service will start at 3 p.m.
The celebration of life services will head to Houston, Texas, where Floyd had previously lived, on June 8. A public visitation will occur at The Fountain of Praise on Hillcroft Avenue from noon to 6 p.m. local time.
Former boxing champion Floyd Mayweather stepped up to pay for the funeral expenses, Leonard Ellerbe, the CEO of Mayweather Promotions, told ESPN on Monday.
A private funeral service will be held at the same location at 11 a.m. local time.
