A Florida city’s first Black woman firefighter filed a lawsuit against the city after her face was swapped with a white face in a mural.
Latosha Clemons, a former deputy fire chief of Boynton Beach, is accusing the city of defamation and negligence after her image and an image of retired fire chief Glenn Joseph were replaced with images of white faces.
“Being depicted as white was not only a false presentation of Clemons, it was also a depiction which completely disrespected all that the first female Black firefighter for the city had accomplished,” a complaint filed in April read, according to The Guardian.
“I was like ‘Wow, why did this happen,’” Clemons said at a press conference in June of 2020, as reported by WPTV News. “I was hurt, I was disappointed, and then I was outraged.”
