Statue of President Theodore Roosevelt to be Removed in New York

Police barricades surround the area around a bronze statue of former President Theodore Roosevelt at the American Museum Of Natural History in New York City on Monday, June 22, 2020. The statue of the 26th president flanked by walking Native American and African figures was unveiled to the public in front of the museum's Central Park West entrance in 1940. Statues in the United States and around the world have been knocked down, removed and vandalized as a debate swirls over monuments that represent possible racial oppression.
