57, Louisville, KY

Darnell was a veteran, well known for mowing his neighbor’s lawns, riding around his neighborhood on his bicycle, and was also Deaf. He was killed by police in his girlfriend’s, of 20 years, apartment.

Powerful black arm raised defiantly into the air, the hand curled into a fist, rising into the middle on the graphic. Designed into the arm, almost like a tattoo, is an infinity/unity symbol and the words “Black Disabled Lives Matter”.
