Black Lives Matter is now also a huge mural on 16st Street in Washington D.C.

Along the road leading to the White House, the Muriel Bowser syndicate of the U.S. city commissioned the construction of a mural that paints the asphalt for the length of two blocks.

While protests for the Black Lives Metter continue across the United States and beyond, Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser decided to join the wave of the movement by commissioning the creation of a mural on the asphalt of the city’s 16st Street, a stone's throw from the White House.

The yellow letters in boldface indicating Black Lives Matter occupy two blocks of 16st Street, now renamed Black Lives Matter Plaza. Similar murals have appeared on the streets of Oakland and Berkeley.

The image of the mural is already visible on Apple’s satellite maps. The company Planet Labs, in fact, posted a satellite image of the mural on Twitter last Friday, and the following day Maxar Technologies also shared the satellite images of the mural and the protesters in the streets on social media.
