Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser on Friday unveiled the newly minted “Black Lives Matter Plaza” near the White House in an apparent tribute to the protesters who have advocated against police brutality and racism in the city over the past several days in the wake of the death of George Floyd.
Bowser tweeted a photo of what appeared to be a city worker affixing a street sign to a light pole on a section of 16th Street in the nation’s capital.
