Years after Donald Trump called for them to be murdered, the “Central Park Five” will see the truth emerge via the Netflix series ‘When They See Us‘….by the brilliant Ava DuVernay.
In it, viewers will be pulled into the case which saw five innocent boys falsely accused of raping a woman in Central Park and how some members the justice system worked tirelessly to ensure the truth about the case would never see the light of day.
May 31st marks the spot for the Netflix series.
In the mix? Niecy Nash, Chris Chalk, Joshua Jackman, Blair Underwood and Jovan Adepo.
On this exact day 30 years ago, a woman was raped in Central Park. Five black + brown boys were framed for her rape. The story you know is the lie that police, prosecutors and Donald Trump told you. WHEN THEY SEE US is the story of the boys from their eyes and their hearts. https://t.co/pJu2FFSYnZ
