31, New London, CT Lashano was a medical student originally from the Bahamas, a loving son, and also had sick cell disease and a mental health disability. He was killed by police in a holding cell inside a police station.

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”.
