My Heart Will Cross This Ocean: My Story, My Son, Amadou : Kadiatou Diallo was born in 1959 in a village in Guinea, West Africa, where her great grandfather had been king. At thirteen she was given away in marriage. At sixteen, she gave birth to her oldest son, Amadou. Despite the rigid strictures of African-Islamic culture, Kadi managed to educate herself and even started a successful business of her own in Bangkok. When she learned that Amadou had been shot, she came to New York and fought to present a true picture of her son. Candid, wise, and generous, and with great pride and searing love, Kadi Diallo finally shares the astonishing, inspiring story of her life, her loss, and the defiant strength she has always found within.
