Mourners Pay Their Respects To George Floyd At Public Viewing In Houston
Mourners are gathering for a final public memorial to George Floyd on Monday in his hometown of Houston.
The church is livestreaming the memorial:
Joe Biden, the former U.S. vice president and presumptive 2020 Democratic presidential nominee, will be in Houston on Monday and plans to meet privately with Floyd's family.
The NPR member station also reported hundreds of people, including politicians such as Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, were in attendance Monday to pay their respects to Floyd and his family.
The Rev. Al Sharpton, the civil rights activist and cable television host, on Monday tweeted a picture of himself, U.S. Rep. Cedric Richmond, D-La., Biden, family attorney Benjamin Crump and Floyd's uncle Roger Floyd.
Houston Public Media's Matt Harab, who is covering the memorial, tweeted video of lines stretching to the parking lot as people waited for their turn to enter the church.
