Washington DC paints a giant 'Black Lives Matter' message on the road to the White House

(CNN)Washington DC is painting a message in giant, yellow letters down a busy DC street ahead of a planned protest this weekend: BLACK LIVES MATTER.

The massive banner-like project spans two blocks of 16th Street, a central axis that leads southward straight to the White House. Each of the 16 bold, yellow letters spans the width of the two-lane street, creating an unmistakable visual easily spotted by aerial cameras and virtually anyone within a few blocks.

The painters were contacted by DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and began work early Friday morning, the mayor's office told CNN.



Holy cow. The city of DC is out here on 16th street behind the White House painting BLACK LIVES MATTER onto the streets that it owns stretching all the way to k Street.
