THE BUZZ: On Tuesday, September 17, 2013 I attended Mo & Me: A Film Screening and Conversation at Tribeca Cinemas. Salim Amin, Chip Duncan and Riz Khan were on hand as speakers. I met fellow Young Global Leader Salim Amin a few years ago at the World Economic Forum meeting in Africa. This film is the powerful story of his father, Mohamed “Mo” Amin – undoubtedly Africa’s greatest photojournalist.
