Must See | When They See Us

When They See Us – Illustration Richie Pope, The New Yorker

I just finished watching the meticulous, breathtaking horror depicted in the popular Netflix series When They See Us. A series telling the story of the wrongfully convicted groep of five young black boys, the case know as the Central Park Jogger Case, or Harlem 5. They went to prison from 4 to 12 years. Gruesome. At times I cried, choked up, clenched my fists and even shouted Bitch! at the screen at some point.

I dreaded the second evening, The Second Half of this test of endurance to wear the glasses of truth, for the duration of the show.

A must see.

 

Yusef Salaam is one of the notorious Harlem 5, telling his story after being acquitted.
