Description

"A moving story that makes the tragedy of Amadou Diallo's death all the more poignant and present.  With the help of Craig Wolff, Kadiatou Diallo show us the roots of her son's story in Africa and in a mother's heart.  She has given us the story of everyman  who comes to America to start over.  But this is not the American dream lined in gold, but a nightmare pock-marked with bullet holes.  To read this story is to be awakened morally to the work left to do to make a humane  family out of our human race."
