Age 39, Albany, NY.

Donald died of cardiac arrest after being shackled, struck, & tasered by officers as he walked home unarmed. Donald had a heart condition & schizophrenia. He resisted arrest but was never a suspect of a crime. No charges were ever filed.

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”.
