On Friday morning in Washington DC, the city unveiled a Black Lives Matter Mural to the public in honor of those who were tragically killed from racism or police brutality-related crimes. The mural allegedly leads up to the White house according to CNN.
Mayor Muriel Bowser tweeted video footage of a Black Lives Matter Mural.
In a separate tweet Bowser said, “The section of 16th street in front of the White House is now officially ‘Black Lives Matter Plaza’.”
Bowser’s chief of staff, John Falcicchio, opened up about the complications they faced when making the mural and the street name placement in a now deleted post. He said, “There was a dispute this week about whose street this week about whose street this is. Mayor Bowser wanted to make it abundantly clear that this is DC’s street and to honor demonstrators who peacefully protested on Monday evening.”
The nation’s capital has been experiencing massive protests following the death of George Floyd an unarmed who was killed by a white cop.
Business Insider reports, on Friday, Bower asked President Trump to remove law enforcement and military personnel from the city.
