WHAT THEY SEE

WHEN THEY SEE US

"When They See Us" is a powerful mini series on the so called Central Five a name given to them by the media to categorize them but they have names: Korey Wise, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Kevin Richardson, and Raymond Santana. We are going to call them the fighting five as they never stop fighting or accepted what so many labeled them as, animals, monsters, or thugs instead of little boys who had their youth taken for a crime that it was clear from the beginning they didn’t commit. When They See Us is a story of the dehumanization of black men. It's the story of the dehumanization of those incarcerated and formerly incarcerated. It’s the story of how mass incarceration affects not just the individual incarcerated but entire families. It’s the story of systemic failures we continue to see; the failure of prosecutors, police, the press and politicians. It's the story of fear and race and how they two always seem to converge in America. When they See Us is an indictment on justice and the ideals we supposedly have of a free country in America.
