“Eric Garner’s 15-month-old daughter Legacy Garner and her mother, Jewel Miller, released a dove above the spot on Bay Street in #StatenIsland where Legacy’s father died at the hands of the police exactly one year ago. Just before the dove was released, a crowd chanted “I can’t breathe” 11 times, echoing Eric Garner’s words as his consciousness ebbed. The ceremony began a day of anniversary rallies, protests and memorials for #EricGarner, whose death was caused by an officer’s chokehold, a move forbidden by Police Department rules. @garethsmit, a photographer who spent five months documenting the family and their Staten Island community, photographed the event while on #nytassignment.
