Memorial: My Hands/41/19

My Hands/41/19 is an internet memorial piece for Amadou Diallo. Diallo was killed by New York City policemen on Febuary 5,1999. The four policemen involved claimed that they thought Diallo’s wallet was a gun and fired 41 shots, hitting him 19 times. My wallet seen in the image was purchased on 125th street in Harlem where Amadou Diallo worked as a vendor.
