RICHMOND, Va. (WTVR) -- The group behind controversial billboards that popped up near Chamberlayne Avenue earlier this month is tweaking the signs' messaging after some drivers were upset.

The Virginia Christian Alliance said the "Stop the Negro Project" billboards are being replaced with signs that state, "History calls it the 'NEGRO PROJECT.' Our community needs to know NOW."

The group, who said the purpose behind the billboards remains the same, will hold a meeting next Thursday to help educate the African-American community about alternatives to abortion.

This is in response to the long-outdated project by Planned Parenthood the group claims was formed to limit the number of black births.
