Live: Crowds gather for George Floyd memorial in Brooklyn

June 4, 2020 | 1:00pm

Crowds are gathered at Brooklyn’s Cadman Plaza to mark the life and death of George Floyd — the unarmed Minneapolis man whose police-custody death has sparked nationwide protests.

Terence Floyd — George Floyd’s brother and a Brooklyn resident — is expected to attend the memorial service, as are local civil rights leaders.

“Terrence Floyd will be present, other family members will be present,” said Rev. Kevin McCall of the Crisis Action Center, who is hosting the memorial with Kevin Livingston, who runs a non-profit called 100 Suits, which provides free suits to formerly incarcerated men.

Mourners are also expected to hold a peaceful march over the Brooklyn Bridge ending at Foley Square.

Cadman Plaza, at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge in Downtown Brooklyn, has been the site of heated protests in recent days.

On Wednesday night, at least 60 protesters were arrested after one group, attempted to march onto the Brooklyn Bridge an hour past the 8 p.m. curfew.
