michael-brownST. LOUIS (AP) — After weeks of community protests, the family of Michael Brown is asking for silence and peace as they lay him to rest.

The funeral Monday will be a chance for people to focus on mourning the 18-year-old who liked computer games and had been eager to start college.

Brown’s great uncle, a pastor, will deliver the eulogy. The Rev. Al Sharpton is also expected to speak. Sharpton says the day should be about Brown’s legacy and people’s memories.

Brown, who is black, was unarmed when he was shot Aug. 9 by a white officer.

Protesters have taken to the streets of Ferguson, calling for change and drawing national attention to issues surrounding race and policing.

A grand jury is considering evidence in the case. A federal investigation is also underway.

    Protesters calling for change? Right… I guess looting and burning down buildings is change.
