Award winning filmmaker Ava DuVernay released the trailer and debut date for her next project centered around the Central Park 5.  The 4 part series will be called “When They See Us” and will premeire on Netflix on May 31st.

Duvernay said, “In 1989, five black and brown teen boys were wrongly accused of a crime they did not commit and branded The Central Park Five, a moniker that has followed them since that time. In 2019, our series gives the five men a platform to finally raise their voices and tell their full stories,”

The 5 boys were between ages 13 and 16 when they were wrongfully accused and imprisoned for a brutal attack and rape in Central Park that they did not commit.  Their sentences were vacated in 2002 but by that time they had been released!
