#WhenTheySeeUs, the Gut-Wrenching Film-Series Exposing a Flawed US Justice System

The Central Park Five is the naming device media used to dehumanize a group of five boys Yusef Salaam, Antron McCray, Raymond Santana Jr, Kroy Wise and Kevin Richardson wrongfully accused for the brutal rape and attempted murder of a white female jogger in Central Park.

A Ava DuVernay film, who is nothing shy of greatness from Disney's Wrinkle in Time to now When They See Us the film explores ever nook and cranny of how the US justice system excavated and coerced young black boys into admitting into a crime they did not commit in exchange for their freedom.

Personally I feel as if the actor Jharrel Jerome, famously known for his performance in Moonlight (2016) deserves a 2020 Oscar win at the very least a nomination for his heartbreaking performance!
