George Floyd Was Remembered With Powerful Speeches At Memorials That Drew Thousands

Thousands of people gathered to remember George Floyd, whose killing in police custody last week sparked outrage and widespread protests across the country, at memorial services in Minneapolis and Brooklyn on Thursday.

Floyd, 46, died May 25 after being detained by four Minneapolis police officers who were responding to a call about a person using a counterfeit $20 bill. The officers, whose actions were captured in a disturbing video, pinned him to the ground and held him in a knee chokehold for more than eight minutes as Floyd cried that he couldn’t breathe.
