Teddy roosevelt statue

For years, The Equestrian Statue — which features African and Native American figures appearing "to hold subservient positions" to Roosevelt — has been been the site of protests.
The statue depicts the former president on a horse, with an Indigenous man and an African-American man walking beside him.
The activists issued multiple demands to the museum and to city officials, including: renaming Columbus Day 'Indigenous Peoples Day.'
