Family, friends, dignitaries, elected officials and community leaders gathered today to remember the life of Rayshard Brooks at Historic Ebenezer Baptist Church.
“We’re here to provide ministry as they walk through the valley of the shadow of death,” said Rev. Raphael G. Warnock, Senior Pastor of Ebenezer.
Rev. Bernice King, daughter of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., addressed the crowd saying “Having a father killed when I was only 5 years of age, my heart deeply grieves for [his daughters] Dream, Memory, Blessing and [stepson] Mekai,” King said.
During the eulogy, Rev. Warnock reflected on the time he’s spent with Brooks’ family in the past few days.
Rev. Warnock also touched on the events leading up to Brooks’ death.
