"I have the potential ... and I can do whatever I want to do." ❄️ Amadou Krubally hopes to become the first Gambian to compete in the Winter Olympics next February. But with a few months to @Beijing_2022 and no sponsor, what will it take to reach his goal? 📹 #BBCSportAfrica
All across Africa, entrepreneurship is on the rise. The continent has the highest percentage of entrepreneurs among working-age adults anywhere in the world. Read here what Amadou Diallo says about the development in Africa and its future.
Minister of Economy of Senegal Amadou Hott mentioned old laws that allowed only doctors to own clinics - this now has changed. The country wants to invest 1,000 billion CFA in health infrastructure, and do that also through public-private partnerships. #HIVSummit2021
Deep cut for those of us who remember. 20 years ago *yesterday* Pat Lynch (okay, fine, the Henry Winkler doppleganger) was the guy who called for a boycott of Bruce Springsteen concerts for writing the song "American Skin," about Amadou Diallo, who was killed by the police.
JUST IN: Prime Minister of the Ivory Coast, Amadou Gon Coulibaly, has died.

Rodney King. Abner Louima. Amadou Diallo. Sean Bell. Oscar Grant. Eric Garner. Michael Brown. Laquan McDonald. Freddie Gray. Antwon Rose Jr. Ahmaud Arbery. Breonna Taylor. George Floyd. Say Their Names.
"They knew about it before George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice, Mike Brown, Sandra Bland, Trayvon Martin, Sean Bell, Amadou Diallo." @ScottieBeam & @SylviaObell discuss the burden put on Black people to help white people unlearn. LISTEN:
Police fired 41 shots when they killed Amadou Diallo. His mom hopes today's protests will bring change.
George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Amadou Diallo, Trayvon Martin and Ahmaud Arbery should all be alive. How many black lives do we need to lose until this senseless murder ends? Why does it take sickening acts of violence on our feeds to raise outrage against racism? #StopKillingUs
