Floyd grew up in Houston’s Third Ward and was killed in the custody of the Minneapolis Police Department on May 25. A video of his death, as well as news of the two high-profile deaths of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, both of whom were black, set off days of unrest throughout the U.S. beginning May 29.
The event included speeches by elected officials, members of Floyd's family and the Rev. William Lawson, a longtime civil rights leader in Houston.
