HOUSTON — George Floyd, the African American whose death in police custody roused worldwide protests against racism, was extolled at his funeral by religious and political leaders, family and friends on Tuesday in his hometown of Houston. “This is a home-going celebration,” Reverend Mia Wright, co-pastor at the Fountain of Praise Church, told mourners. Banners featured pop art illustrations of Floyd wearing a baseball cap with a halo above it.
