Services honoring George Floyd, who died while being arrested in Minneapolis, will take place in three states over the course of six days.
A memorial service will be held in Minneapolis on Thursday from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., family attorney Benjamin Crump said.
The Rev. Al Sharpton will deliver a eulogy at the memorial, which will take place at the Frank J. Lindquist Sanctuary at North Central University.
A public viewing and a private memorial service will be held in Raeford, North Carolina, on Saturday, Hubert Peterkin, the sheriff of Hoke County, said on Facebook.
The public viewing will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Cape Fear Conference B Headquarters, followed by a private service for just the family at 3 p.m., Peterkin said. No protesting will be allowed.
Next Monday, a public memorial will take place from noon to 6 p.m. at The Fountain of Praise Church at 13950 Hillcroft Ave. in Houston, the Fort Bend Memorial Planning Center said in a statement.
And on Tuesday, a private service will be held at an undisclosed location, the statement said.

I sure hope they have a federal holiday called Saint Floyd Day while they are at it.
They are really pulling out all the stops to scare blacks to vote for Biden
Take this on the road. A Road Show.
All Summer Long.
When they do and if they do “they” need to tell us idiots just what this guy Floyd did to better society and the would,other than NOTHING
Nancy could invite the body to the House chamber for public viewing. Have a state funeral. She could claim it as payback for Limbaugh’s Medal of Freedom.
Except that this has nothing to do with Biden...or Trump.
Maybe they should stuff the corpse and take it on a world tour.
Must be all the states he served prison time in.
All right, all right, I surrender because I’m white and irredeemably corrupt and doomed. Hence, I’ve set up a stake in my front yard and will burn myself while kneeling before a picture of St. George Floyd.
And how would we celebrate Saint Floyd Day?
Go out and rob someone?
Do a porno?
Overdose on heroin?
Didn’t they ride Michael Jackson’s body around for days?
Al Sharpton was just unbearable. Starting to learn that Floyd was not the saint they make him out to be.
Not even Aretha Franklin or Muhamad Ali got a Three State Funeral! I can see this will be another ‘over the top’ situation. Let the pandering......BEGIN!!!
What the hell is that about? I thought Floyd lived in Minneapolis-did he live in a town in South Carolina and Houston Texas at the same time?
Hope everybody washes their hands a lot, wears their masks, and practice safe distancing.
Oh, sorry. Saint George has eliminated all the Coronavirus stuff? Hey, pretty good work for a drug-addled loser.
Are they giving him a funeral train like Abe Lincoln or something?
He lived in those three states at various times in his life
