“Black Lives Matter” sign vandalized outside of area church

KIRKWOOD, Mo. (AP) – Police are investigating after graffiti was scrawled on a “Black Lives Matter” sign outside a suburban St. Louis church.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that black paint was sprayed on the sign that hangs outside Eliot Chapel, a Unitarian church in Kirkwood.

The sign was dedicated on Aug. 9, the one-year anniversary of the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown in Ferguson. The shooting helped spur the national “Black Lives Matter” movement.

The Rev. Barbara Gadon and her congregation have been involved in the Black Lives Matter movement since Brown’s death. She says the vandalism will not intimidate the congregation.
