A controversial Black Lives Matter mural is the focus of a peaceful protest that is set for this week in Greenburgh.
The mural on Manhattan Avenue sparked backlash from town residents over an image of Minister Louis Farrakhan.
Town officials want to see it taken down because Farrakhan has made many controversial statements against Jewish people and the LGBTQ community.
The artist and BLM advocates say removing the image would be a violation of his First Amendment rights.
This week's demonstration is scheduled for Friday at 6:30 p.m.
