Black Lives Matter Plaza: Turning a Political Slogan into a Street Name in Washington, DC


On Friday, Washington, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser announced that a portion of 16th Street near the White House had been renamed Black Lives Matter Plaza. That day a street sign bearing the new name was installed. “Black lives matter” was painted in huge yellow letters on the road surface on Friday as well.

“Let's meet this evening at the corner of Black Lives Matter Plaza and Flatten the Curve Avenue. If you reach No Justice No Peace Road, My Body My Choice Drive, Sensible Gun Control Boulevard, or Me Too Street, turn around, you missed the intersection.” That may be the kind of directions people will be providing in Washington, DC in the future if the city government keeps renaming roads after political slogans.
