Memento #5 is an elegy to the Civil Rights movement. The painting depicts a black angel standing at the center of a living room. The figure draws closed curtain, symbolically concluding a decade of peaceful civil disobedience. Behind the angel, at left and right, are the faces of President John F. Kennedy, Senator Robert F. Kennedy, the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. Each year of the decade appears between the glitter strands, and fragments of the word "Remember" are also visible.
