Over the weekend, a large Black Lives Matter mural was painted on a section of Fulton Street outside of the Billie Holiday Theatre in Restoration Plaza; all in all, a 375-foot-long stretch. The piece mirrors the mural that went up in Washington D.C. recently near the White House, with bold yellow lettering that's particularly striking when seen from above. You can get that bird's-eye view in the below drone video, courtesy of @mingomatic.
The project was a joint effort between the Billie Holiday Theatre and Councilman Robert Cornegy Jr., who had reached out to artist Dawud West for the project.
Today, Mayor Bill de Blasio announced that the Bed-Stuy block will be pedestrians-only all summer, and the city is "working with the MTA to coordinate nearby transit."
