Private memorial held in North Carolina for George Floyd

Jun 07, 2020 14:20 IST

A private memorial service was held for George Floyd on Saturday afternoon at a Baptist church in Raeford, North Carolina, where several hundred people from across the United States were in attendance. Worshipers sang along with a choir, as a large photo of Floyd and a portrait of him adorned with an angel’s wings and halo sat at the front of the chapel. Floyd died after a Minneapolis police officer placed a knee on his neck for several minutes. His death has sparked protests around the world against police brutality and racism.
