Michael Brown funeral draws thousands along with celebrities, civil rights leaders
Thousands of people attended a Baptist church in Missouri on Monday in order to mourn and celebrate the life of Michael Brown, a young, unarmed black man who died after being shot by local police.
The funeral took place at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church, attracting a large crowd as well as prominent figures such as Rev. Jesse Jackson, children of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., White House officials, Congressional members, and the film director Spike Lee.
Although there were plenty of tears shed at the religious service, the mood has been described as celebratory, with singing by a choir and even dancing in the church.
