Vandalized BLM sign in Greenburgh is replaced with 2 new ones
Two new Black Lives Matter signs installed at Mayfair Way and Knollwood Road are being described as a celebration for Greenburgh and its ongoing fight against racial bias.
Councilman Ken Jones says, "The purpose of all of this is to discuss racism in the U.S. and in our communities. Unless we discuss [it], we're never going to get beyond it."
In May of last year, a newly installed BLM sign was vandalized in an act that was condemned by town officials.
"It's important to show the community that we’re one, and to show that were all part of one family. There's no room for racism, we can all be friends," says Jackie McCreary.
In the spring, the town will unveil a new Black history mural as part of the Manhattan Avenue Project.
