D.C. Mayor Renames Street By Torched Church And White House ‘Black Lives Matter Plz’
D.C. Mayor Muriel E. Bowser renamed the street in front of the White House ‘Black Lives Matter Plz’ days after rioting and looting led to the burning of the St. John’s Church on the corner street.
Earlier in the day Bowser had authorized the city’s Department of Public Works to paint “Black Lives Matter” in massive yellow letters on 16th Street near the White House as an affront to President Donald Trump.
