Ivy McGregor, of The Fountain of Praise church in Houston, announced during the funeral service for the late George Floyd, that the President of Ghana would be permanently mounting George Floyd’s name on a wall at the Diaspora African Forum in the W.E.B. Du Bois Center in Ghana.

“The family of George Floyd would like to acknowledge the message of resolution and solidarity and visual tribute from his excellency Nana Akufo-Addo, the President of Ghana,” McGregor said Tuesday during the private memorial for Floyd.
A video produced by “the people of Ghana” was played during Monday’s public viewing.

W. E. B. Du Bois Memorial Centre for Pan-African Culture is a memorial place, a research facility and tourist attraction in the Cantonments area of Accra, Ghana, that was opened to the public in 1985.

It is named in dedication to W. E. B. Du Bois, an African-American historian and Pan-Africanist who became a citizen of Ghana in the early 1960s. He lived there in his last few years at the invitation of President Kwame Nkrumah, while compiling the Encyclopedia Africana.
