George Floyd's Funeral Takes Place in Houston, Texas

The funeral for George Floyd took place at the Fountain of Praise church in his native Houston on June 9. The service was limited to 500 people, according to local media, and featured a eulogy from Rev. Al Sharpton and a video message from Joe Biden.

The video was filmed during the funeral, and shows Rev. Sharpton’s procession walking to the altar, Joe Biden’s video address to the congregation, and musical tributes.

“We can’t turn away. We must not turn away,” Joe Biden said in his address to the congregation. “We cannot leave this moment thinking we can once again turn away from racism that stings at our very soul, from systemic abuse that still plagues American life.” Credit: @Vock3 via Storyful
