As protests ramped up this week, the Trump administration erected around 1.7 miles of metal mesh fence around the White House. Now, the fence is becoming a makeshift display for protest art and memorials to victims of police violence.
Washington Post reporter Hannah Natanson uploaded a video to Twitter showing a portion of the fence adorned with signs and memorials.
The fence outside the White House has been converted to a crowd-sourced memorial wall — almost like an art gallery — to black men and women who lost their lives at the hands of police.
