Roosevelt statue to be removed

Theodore Roosevelt’s statue will be removed from the Museum of Natural History in New York City. The memorial has long prompted objections as a symbol of colonialism.

The bronze statue that has stood at the museum’s Central Park West entrance since 1940 depicts Roosevelt on horseback with a Native American man and an African man standing next to the horse.

The American Museum of Natural History will remove a prominent statue of Theodore Roosevelt from its entrance after years of objections that it symbolizes colonial expansion and racial discrimination, Mayor Bill de Blasio said Sunday.
