In 1989-1990, five teenage boys of color were falsely convicted of the rape and vicious assault of a white investment banker in Central Park. The men became known as the "Central Park Five." Director and writer Ava DuVernay took up the five men’s story at their personal request, resulting in her new Netflix series “When They See Us”. She joins the program from LA.
