A two-block section of street, Black Lives Matter Plaza adds to Washington, DC's long list of sights rooted in the fight for racial equality.

Located along a two-block area of 16th Street NW in Downtown DC, the mural features the words “Black Lives Matter” in 50-foot-tall letters, in yellow and all caps, as well as the flag of the District. The area is open to visitors at any time of the day.
