In a video clip posted to Twitter, the protective fencing put up by the Trump Administration to keep George Floyd protesters a healthy distance from the White House gates is being covered with signs promoting Black Lives Matter as well as memorials to African-Americans who have died at the hands of the police.
According to Washington Post journalist Hannah Natanson, "The fence outside the White House has been converted to a crowd-sourced memorial wall — almost like an art gallery — to black men and women who lost their lives at the hands of police. Hundreds are strolling, looking, adding names and paintings and posters."
