She spoke about her job as a special-education teacher in Sarcelles, north of Paris (20:13), about how young men of her neighbourhood are stigmatised (24:05) and about the night of Adama Traoré’s death (26:30). She explained what led to the incarceration of two of her brothers (34:00) and detailed her profound link to Mali, where her father and Adama are buried (40:13). Assa Traoré was born in 1985 in Paris. At a young age, she takes care of her little brothers and sisters, born out of the other marriages of her father. Following an oral presentation in her school, she decides she wants to be a special-education teacher, a path she successfully follows. On the 19th of July 2016, her younger brother Adama Traoré, who was turning 24 on that day, dies in Persan’s police station, after an identity check and questioning in Beaumont-sur-Oise. In the hours following his death, his family accuses the police forces of being responsible for his passing. The authorities deny any such responsibility. A battle both in court and in the media follows. Assa is fully dedicated to this fight and becomes spokesperson for the advocacy group “Justice for Adama”. In May 2016, she co-signs “Letter to Adama” with the journalist Elsa Vigoureux, a book recounting this battle for justice.
