A group of people has covered up a statue of Thomas Jefferson in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Dozens turned out with Black Lives Matter signs around 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Jefferson, one of the USA founding father, was known for owning slaves.

Some 100 students, faculty and community members reportedly took part in the demonstration, which mimicked the decision by Charlottesville's authorities last month to shroud Confederate statues. Three people were on the statue that is covered in black.

Many spoke against white supremacy and some speakers at the event called Jefferson names like "racist".
