It has been 17 years since the paths of the mother of Amado Diallo, and mine crossed under VERY unfortunate circumstances.
Mrs. Diallo  had just arrived from Africa after her son was fatally shot by police in the Bronx. Well, 17 years later, we met again. Besides Mrs. Diallo, I also bumped into the Rev. Jesse Jackson.  Covered him around the world/Jackson 88 campaign.
