Amadou Diallo was a young man from Liberia, interested in continuing his education in America. After receiving his elders’ blessings, he traveled to New York City to pursue his dreams. His pursuit of the American dream turned into a nightmare when he was gunned down by four plainclothes officers. Korryn Gaines was a daughter, a mother and a friend. Her distrust in police led to recording her interactions with police. Her final recording is of a standoff with officers that ended tragically with her death and the injury of her son.Support the show (https://www.buymeacoffee.com/hudspod)

Trial By Media: The Brutal Execution of Amadou Diallo (41 Shots)
Down To Earth With Harriet Cammock
Amadou Diallo was just 23 years old—and unarmed—when the New York City Police Department fired 41 shots towards him, 19 of which struck the Guinean immigrant. In the ensuing trial, the four officers who fired the 41 shots were all acquitted. Today, the country is reeling from the heartless execution of George Floyd, an African American Minneapolis resident killed by an officer. Even if the officer is charged, can we expect that he will actually see jail time? Or will history repeat itself, as in the case of Amadou Diallo?--- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/harrietcammock/messageSupport this podcast: https://anchor.fm/harrietcammock/support
Episode 9: Amadou Diallo gives writing tips from the world of sci-fi
Cutting Chai Stories: Write copy that feels good
In this episode of Cutting Chai Stories with Jayati Vora, I speak with my friend Amadou Diallo, a journalist and fiction writer whose work has appeared in media outlets such as the New York Times and the PBS Newshour. In another life, he has also had careers as both a musician and a fine art photographer. A few months ago, a short story he wrote, "The Countdown," was published by the Times' Sunday Review (read it here: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/01/03/opinion/amadou-diallo-the-countdown.html). He shares a great tip for how to write sci-fi without getting overwhelmed; he explains why he loves Raymond Carver; and his writing prompt is so delicious I'm dying to share it here. But I won't, because Amadou says so many other things I want you to listen to! Here's his list of fave authors: Raymond Carver; James McBride; and Charles Johnson. Check them out! And remember--if you feel inspired to write a short story based on our prompt, do send it to me at cuttingchaistories AT gmail DOT com. I love hearing from you!

When police in New York shot a young immigrant 41 times in 1999, thousands of people took to the streets to protest. But Amadou Diallo's mother Kadiatou wanted her son to be remembered for the way he lived, not the way he died. So she flew to the US to speak on his behalf. She has been telling Sharon Hemans her story.
