TULSA, Okla. -

A petition has been created to keep the Black Lives Matter mural on Black Wall Street.

The mural was painted on Greenwood last month, right before Juneteenth and President Donald Trump’s rally.

On Wednesday, the City of Tulsa announced plans to remove the mural, saying it was painted illegally and leaving it would mean all groups would be allowed to paint murals on streets.
