On June 5, Washington, D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser authorized a giant street mural to be painted in the nation's capital, the giant yellow letters reading "BLACK LIVES MATTER," from sidewalk to sidewalk on 16 St., between K and H streets and leading to the White House.

Since then, cities around the country have followed suit, showing their support for the protestors who have been demonstrating for nearly three weeks against police brutality and racism in the wake of the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.

The protests have evolved following the police killing of 27-year-old Rayshad Brooks in Atlanta and the murders of two black trans women, Riah Milton in Ohio and Dominique Fells in Pennsylvania, but the message is clear: All Black Lives Matter.

Take a look at the cities that have paid tribute by creating street murals of their own.
