A BLM tribute in Tompkins Square Park

Someone placed 10 tombstone-shaped signs in Tompkins Square Park paying tribute to the unarmed black men and women who died (or were injured) at the hands of police across the country in recent years.

Represented on the east side of the main lawn are Breonna Taylor, Daniel Prude, Trayvon Martin, George Floyd, Eric Garner, Freddie Gray, Tamir Rice, Elijah McClain, Michael Brown and Jacob Blake, who is now paralyzed from the waist down after being shot seven times by a police officer in Kenosha, Wis.

Say their names, repeat their names, don't let them be forgotten. Their murderers and abusers must be brought to justice.

Those were placed on the hill but unfortunately removed. Suggestions on where they should be placed next??
