Protest Benches at 14th and Oak Streets, NW


I’ve always known there were benches here but I never noticed the writing on them before. I’m not sure who sponsored the writing but it is certainly thought provoking. It is very interesting to see this perspective. You can see some of the writing on the bench above answering the question: “Why do you think the benches were taken out?”.

Do folks know if these benches were supposed to be removed or is this a preemptive protest?


More benches after the jump.
