When They See Us
"Ava DuVernay's Netflix miniseries takes the dehumanizing media coverage of the Central Park Five and shows their individual journeys with a personal, intimate approach. When They See Us shows us who Raymond Santana, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Antron McCray, and Korey Wise are beyond the sensational headlines, painting a crushing portrait of the unimaginably cruel hand they were dealt. It's a heartbreaking series to watch, as it seems every bit of happiness or optimism leads to tragedy until the end, but ultimately, it's a story that needs to be known."
