Amadou Diallo's Renewable Gift to New York
News Report, Nayaba Arinde
Twenty-three-year-old Amadou Diallo died in a hail of police bullets
on Feb.4, 1999, but not only did his death spur a new leg of the local
civil rights quest, the symbol of Diallo’s innocent blood spilled
was used to create scholarships—renewable gifts—for students
striving to make the best of themselves and contribute to society.
