Harlem Speaker Mark-Viverito And Others To Remove J. Marion Sims Statue

In the wake of the surge in hate rhetoric nationwide, New York City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito, elected officials, and community leaders will rally outside the J. Marion Sims Monument in Central Park on Monday, August 21, 2017.
The rally at 103rd Street and Fifth Avenue will be used to renew their demand for the NYC Parks Department to remove an offensive statue honoring a physician who conducted medical experiments on non-anaesthetized enslaved Black women.
