Not thugs. Not wilding. Not criminals. Not even the Central Park Five. They are Korey, Antron, Raymond, Yusef, Kevin. They are millions of young people of color who are blamed, judged and accused on sight. May 31. A film in four parts about who they really are. WHEN THEY SEE US.

The project is about the lives of the five young boys who make up the "Central Park Five." This 60-second teaser gave me CHILLS. Can't wait for May 31!
