An equestrian monument to former US President Theodore Roosevelt, located at the entrance to the American Museum of Natural History, is being shown in New York. This was reported by The New York Times, speaking in favor of a statement by the president of the museum and the city’s authorities.
A bronze monument to the American president, in power from 1901 to 1909, was erected in 1940. The monument consists of three main elements: Roosevelt sits on horseback, next to him is one Indian, and the other African.
As noted, the decision to dismantle the monuments was made by the museum, the authorities of New York. Activists opposed this monument, which became a symbol of racial protection and colonial expansion. A protest against racism that erupted in the United States.
