21, St. Lawrence, GA

Originally from Nigeria, Mathew was arrested after fighting with his girlfriend during a manic episode. While handcuffed, chair-restrained, & wearing a spit mask, he was tased 4 times by officers. He was later found dead in his cell. Coroner’s finding: Stressed to Death.

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”.
