Meeting with Hollywood Mayor Levy

2600 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, FL 33020

Thursday, January 12, 2017 at 11am-12:15pm

Hosted by: Black Lives Matter Alliance Broward

Public meeting with Mayor Levy to discuss the city’s action plan for removing the names Forrest, Lee and Hood from all street signs in Hollywood.

These names are shameful tributes to men who supported slavery during the Civil War and were known white supremacists. 

For over a decade Hollywood’s African American citizens have pleaded with the city elected officials to take action. There is no reason for those names to be on our streets today.
