Why ‘When They See Us’ is a real-life horror film for Black America

When They See Us should not be classified as a crime drama. Ava DuVernay’s Netflix four-part mini-series stands as a real-life horror story for Blacks in America.

The film centers around the brutal rape of a White woman that occurred on April 19, 1989, in New York’s Central Park. In dire need to solve the crime, several detectives and an overzealous prosecutor, Linda Fairstein, coerced a group of Black and Latino kids into confessing to the crime.
