A new statue of George Floyd is now on display in Brooklyn.
The 6-foot sculpture was unveiled in Flatbush early Saturday morning as many across the city celebrate Juneteenth, now a federally recognized holiday.
George Floyd’s brother, Terrance Floyd was on hand for the unveiling and spoke about the importance of the day and keeping his brother’s memory alive.
“It’s a major statement for a major person,” Terrance Floyd told NBC. “To see Brooklyn represent him, and honor him on a national holiday, it’s all love.”
The statue will remain at the Flatbush Junction for several weeks before moving to Union Square in Manhattan.
Saturday’s unveiling comes a few days after Newark debuted its own statue of Floyd on Wednesday outside of City Hall.
