Last year, we shared that Ava DuVernay would be teaming up with Netflix in order to share the story of the Central Park Five.
If you don’t know the story already, a brutal rape occurred in Central Park on the night of April 19th, 1989. The chain of events changed the lives of five teenagers who were wrongly accused of the crime.
Now, 30 years later, Netflix will release, When They Us on May 31st, a four-part limited series that will allow people to see the story of Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise over the span of 25 years.
When They See Us was created and co-written and directed by Ava DuVernay.
