Mourners gather at historic Atlanta church to remember Rayshard Brooks

  • Martin Luther King’s daughter Bernice King delivers eulogy
  • Stacey Abrams, tipped as possible Biden pick, in attendance

Mourners gathered Tuesday for a private funeral for Rayshard Brooks, the Black man who was killed by a white police officer in a fast-food parking lot in Georgia earlier this month. The service took place inside the Atlanta church where the Rev Martin Luther King Jr preached his first sermon and was later eulogized.

Brooks’ golden casket was escorted by a black and white funeral hearse, and featured a poster that read “killed in Atlanta Georgia 2020”.
