Where: American Museum of Natural History (200 Central Park West)
Lend your support and express your outrage with the shameful decision to remove the monumental statue dedicated to President Theodore Roosevelt on Central Park West.
Commissioned in the 1930s and unveiled with pride as Americans pondered potential involvement in World War II, this statue depicts President Roosevelt in a manner that harkens back to his rough-riding days in Cuba. Roosevelt, astride Little Texas, flanked by figures representative not of racial weakness but of noble human strength, welcomes all to the American Museum of Natural History’s grand entrance and Theodore Roosevelt Rotunda.
