Al Sharpton Set to Give Eulogy at Rodney King Funerl

The Rev. Al Sharpton and other civil rights leaders will join family and friends in Los Angeles at a public funeral service for Rodney King

Sharpton, who says in a statement that King was "a symbol of civil rights" who "represented the anti-police brutality and anti-racial profiling movement of our time," will deliver the eulogy Saturday at Forest Lawn Hollywood Hills.

The funeral comes nearly two weeks after King was found dead at the bottom of the swimming pool at his Rialto, Calif. home on June 17. He was 47.

King's death is being treated as an accidental drowning but authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine the official cause of death.
