On the morning of May 14, 2010, Kedrick Ali Morrow told his mother the world would one day know his name.
Less than 24 hours later, Morrow, an 18-year-old aspiring rapper who was one month away from graduating from high school and receiving a $26,000-a-year scholarship to St. John's University, was shot and killed at a Springfield Gardens party thrown by a friend.
His mother, Shenee Johnson, is now trying to keep his memory alive.
