Activists push to rename NYC park named after man with racist past

There is a movement to rename one NYC park named after a man who is credited as the Father of Bronx Parks, but is also notorious for his racist views.
Activists (?) want to rename the 15-acre Mullaly Park in the Highbridge section of the Bronx.
“John Mullaly was a racist. He believed that Blacks were inferior and that New York should not be fighting to free Blacks in the Civil War,” one activist said.
Mullaly is credited for creating an area of six parks connected by three parkways. But there is more to his story. “He was an instigator for the New York City draft riots in which 11 to 19 New York City residents were lynched,” said Chauncey Young with Bronx Council for Environmental Quality. Highbridge residents and community activists gathered Thursday morning to demand the name be changed.
