FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) - A banner honoring Black History Month in Fayetteville is going viral after a photo of it was posted on Twitter.
The banner, put up in honor of the city's Black History Month celebrations, also reads "BLACK LIVES MATTER" and "#FAYETTEVILLECARES".
"It's important because it confirms Fayetteville's commitment to diversity and particularly since it's Black History Month," Compassion Fayetteville member D'Andre Jones said.
The banner was approved by the city's A&P commission. It is the second banner put up by the group, but this year it is gaining a lot of attention on social media and by those passing by.
"I support celebration of African-American history because it's part of our history but black lives matter I think it's more of an all lives matter thing," Fayetteville resident Nicole Gottlich.
As of Thursday (Feb. 2) night, the tweet had 41,385 likes and 16,229 retweets.
