Yusef Salaam and Raymond Santana attend a private screening of the Central Park5 story titled “WHEN THEY SEE US” directed by Ava Duveray now showing on Netflix. No one was prepared for what would be eye witnessed on the incredible Netflix series .
Everyone knew the Central Park 5 Story when the 5 teenagers from NYC were sentenced in 1989 but to see this story unfold on the big screen and feel the pain and injustice these boys endured; especially Korey Wise. We were simply not prepared.
