Tuesday’s peaceful protest in Downtown Goldsboro included a special guest.
George Floyd’s aunt Mahalia Jones is a Goldsboro native and currently lives in Kinston.
She tells Goldsboro Daily News she wanted to show support for the local residents who were showing their support for her nephew.
Jones is pleased with how the local protests have remained peaceful and says George would not have wanted any violence.
George Floyd has many North Carolina ties. He was born in Fayetteville, and his family is planning a memorial service for him in Raeford.
