Product Description

When four New York City police officers killed Amadou Diallo in 1999, the forty-one shots they fired echoed loudly across the nation. In death, Diallo joined a long list of young men of color killed by police in cities & towns all across America. Innuendos of criminality implicitly discredited many of these victims & falsely held them responsible for their own deaths. Diallo was an innocent, a young WestAfrican immigrant doing nothing more suspicious than returning home to his Bronx apartment after working all day. This book offers an oral history of Diallo's death.
