Floyd died May 25 in a confrontation with police, sparking protests and riots in Minneapolis and other US cities, as well as marches in foreign countries.

The intersection where Floyd died is barricaded and has a memorial. Demonstrators have occupied the area and said they are determined to stay until the city comes up with funding for antiracism training and a property tax freeze for people in the zone.

Minneapolis had planned to reopen 38th Street this summer, but decided not to when activists said they wanted it left as a memorial.

Other Minneapolis streets named for famous people include Ralph Waldo Emerson, William Cullen Bryant, Washington Irving, and Sir Isaac Newton, among others.
