George Floyd Hologram Project Has Begun.


A hologram of George Floyd will light up the Robert E. Lee statue on Monument Avenue, in Virginia which has since been covered in spray paint with phrases like "Black Lives Matter" and "Stop White Supremacy" .

"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 get a preview of it during a private event held at the site of the former Jefferson Davis monument.

"Since the death of my brother George, his face has been seen all over the world," Rodney Floyd, brother of George Floyd said in a statement. "Now by partnering with Change.org, the hologram will allow my brother's face to be seen as a symbol for change in places where change is needed most."

The hologram show features a "myriad of fireflies that form into a beautiful image of George Floyd." His name is depicted in graffiti.

The event at the Lee statue is just the first of five stops in North Carolina, Georgia and other states this week, as it Follows the route of the 1961 Freedom Rides.

Black artists, musicians, poets and leaders will be attending to commemorate the launch.
