Black Lives Matter Plaza Is Now a Permanent Installation

Daniella Byck, Washingtonian, October 29, 2021

Black Lives Matter Plaza is now a permanent fixture of DC’s streetscape. The mural, painted onto the stretch of 16th Street, Northwest between K and H streets in June 2020, was the site of racial justice protests {snip}

The construction project kicked off in July with a $4.8 million price tag. {snip}
