The City of Tulsa announced that the Black Lives Matter mural on Greenwood will not be removed today as planned.

The decision comes after a group gathered on Greenwood this morning to protest its removal by covering the mural with the names of those who have been the victims of racially-motivated violence.



Officials with the city said, “There is no plan to remove it today. The City is working on the best solution moving forward.”

More than 11,000 people have signed a petition in favor of keeping the mural in Greenwood.
