The mother of George Floyd’s 6-year-old daughter Gianna said she struggled to tell the little girl how her father died.
“She was standing by the door, and she said, ‘Mama, something’s going on with my family.’ And I say, ‘Why do you say that?’ She said, ‘Because I hear them saying my dad’s name on TV.’ She wanted to know how he died. And the only thing that I can tell her is he couldn’t breathe,” Roxie Williams told CNN’s Omar Jimenez in an interview.
In a video shared on Instagram, Gianna sat on former NBA player and Floyd’s friend Stephen Jackson’s shoulders and said, “Daddy changed the world!”
In the interview, Jackson, as well as attorney Chris Stewart, said Floyd moved from Houston to Minneapolis for work to provide for his family.
“We have to get convictions,” Jackson said.
