[RPCV news] Documentary on Amadou Diallo and Jesse Thyne

RPCV Micah Schaffer ('99-'01) has produced a feature length documentary called Death of Two Sons. It explores the deaths of Amadou Diallo, a Guinean living in New York City, and Jesse Thyne, a PCV who served in Diallo's village. The film looks at many difficult questions, such as those of race, justice and public revolt against the very different systemic problems that led to Amadou's and Jesse's deaths.
