DC Paints “Black Lives Matter” On Road To White House

The Hill reports:

Washington, D.C., is painting large yellow letters spelling out “Black Lives Matter” on a major road leading to the White House Friday. The letters span two blocks of 16th Street NW in the nation’s capital and take up the width of the two-lane road.

Painters started on the project early Friday morning after being contacted by Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser (D), according to multiple reports.

Bowser’s chief-of-staff John Falcicchio tweeted Friday “There was a dispute 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 protesting on Monday evening.”
