Attendees: Mayor Sylvester Turner, Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, Rev. Al Sharpton, Attorney Benjamin Crump, Slim Thug, Leela James, Paul Wall, Floyd Mayweather, Congressman Al Green, and Bishop James Dixon are among the confirmed guests slated to attend the memorial.

A public memorial was held in Houston on Monday. A service was held last Thursday in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where Floyd was killed. A second service was held on Saturday in Raeford, North Carolina, where Floyd was born.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee met with the Floyd family on Monday. According to family attorney Benjamin Crump, Biden spoke with the family for more than an hour. “He listened, heard their pain, and shared in their woe. That compassion meant the world to this grieving family,” Crump tweeted.

President Trump spoke to the Floyd family in the days after George’s death via telephone, but Philonise Floyd (George’s brother) described that conversation as “brief” and Trump “didn’t even give me an opportunity to speak.”

Following Tuesday’s service, Floyd will be buried next to his mother at a cemetery in Pearland, Texas.
