“A Monumental Change: The George Floyd Hologram Memorial Project” was created by Change.org and the George Floyd Foundation. Floyd’s family was able to preview it Monday night during a private event held at the former Jefferson Davis memorial site.
George Floyd’s brother Rodney Floyd said in a statement, “Since the death of my brother George, his face has been seen all over the world.” “Now by partnering with Change.org, the hologram will allow my brother’s face to be seen as a symbol of change in places where change is most needed.”
According to a news release, the hologram shows “an innumerable description of fireflies as a beautiful image of George Floyd.” His name is depicted in frescoes, depicting the mural memories that have become popular around the world to remember his life.
The incident at the Lee Statue is the first of five stops in North Carolina, Georgia and other states this week. Following the 1961 Freedom Ride route, the hologram would replace the Confederate statues as a “symbolic call to continue the fight for racial justice”, project organizers said.
Black artists, musicians, poets and leaders will attend the launch.
