Black Lives Matter Plaza NW

Street Art · Downtown, Washington


Black Lives Matter Plaza is a two-block-long pedestrian section of 16th Street NW in downtown Washington, D.C. The plaza was renamed by Mayor Muriel Bowser on June 5, 2020, after the Department of Public Works painted the words "Black Lives Matter" in yellow, 35-foot-tall capital letters, along with the D.C. flag, during the series of George Floyd protests taking place in the city.
