A sculpture of George Floyd was unveiled outside of Newark, New Jersey’s city hall this week. The 700-pound bronze statue will remain in the New Jersey city for at least a year, to honor Floyd, who was killed by police officers in Minneapolis in 2020.
At an unveiling ceremony Wednesday, Newark Mayor Ras J. Baraka said Floyd “represents a lot more than himself at this juncture in history.”
The article goes on to state the following:
“All of the activity that took place around this country because of the untimely and vicious murder of George Floyd, and all the activism that sparked out of it, is worth us pausing and paying attention to,” the mayor said.
Attorney Ben Crump, who leads Floyd’s family’s legal team, posted a photo of the massive statue and tweeted, “WOW! New Jersey has honored George Floyd with a statue outside of Newark City Hall! This beautiful acknowledgment is a symbol of the tremendous impact he continues to have on America.”
