A funeral was been held for Rodney King on Saturday the man who became famous after his 1991 beating by Los Angeles police officers.
King was found dead at the bottom of the swimming pool at his home in California on June 17.
King's family members held a private service early in the day, followed by a public memorial and burial.
His death is being treated as an accidental drowning but authorities are awaiting autopsy results to determine the official cause of death.
He was 47.
King became famous after his beating by Los Angeles police in 1991 was captured on videotape and broadcast worldwide, as were photos of his bloodied and bruised face.
More than a year later, four officers charged with felony assault in the beating were acquitted by a jury with no black members.
The verdict sparked one of the most costly and deadly race riots in U.S. history.
But King never showed bitterness to the officers who assaulted him.
During the unrest, which left more than 50 people dead and caused more than 1 billion dollars in property damage, King famously pleaded for peace by asking, "Can we all get along?"
His famous words were embroidered on the lid of King's casket, next to a portrait of him.
