Community leader protests after City of Bloomington takes over creation of BLM mural

May 1, 2021; Bloomington, Indiana: Nichelle Whitney holds a sign reading, “If Black Lives Matter Protect Black Women,” while City of Bloomington employees and volunteers paint at BLM mural on 6th Street Saturday. Whitney told The Bloomington that she had been working for about a year to help facilitate a second mural as part of the Banneker Community Center Advisory Council, along with Joy Roberts. However, after withholding information from her in a meeting, workers for the City of Bloomington took over control of the project, which led to Whitney resigning in protest.
