Black lives matter plaza

H Street, NW at Lafayette Square of President's Park

Black Lives Matter Plaza (officially Black Lives Matter Plaza Northwest) is a two-block-long section of 16th Street NW in Downtown Washington, D.C. The plaza was renamed by black Democrat Mayor Muriel Bowser on June 5, 2020, after the Department of Public Works painted the words "Black Lives Matter" in 35-foot (11 m) yellow capital letters, along with the flag of Washington, D.C., as part of the George Floyd protests. Black Lives Matter DC activists, on the evening of June 6, 2020, removed the three stars from the D.C. flag and added "Defund the Police" in capital letters to the end of the mural. In the following weeks, dozens of similar street murals were painted across the United States.
