New Episode: WHEN THEY SEE US
Happy JUNETEENTH from The Sibs! We’re back with an all-new episode of the pod. This week, we examine and discuss the Netflix series When They See Us.
Directed by Ava DuVernay, When They See Us tells the story of the 1989 Central Park jogger case and explores the lives of the five accused who were prosecuted on charges related to the sexual assault of a female victim, and of their families.
From their (illegal) questioning and eventual charging and incarceration of five black and brown boys – Kevin Richardson (Asante Blackk), Antron McCray (Caleel Harris), Yusef Salaam (Ethan Herisse), Korey Wise (Jharrel Jerome), and Raymond Santana (Marquis Rodriguez- from New York City’s least privileged families and communities. They became known as the Central Park Five (or shall we say, the Exonerated Five). We review their stories, share our insights and offer our heartfelt prayers and hugs to them and their families.
Also on the show, we’re celebrate JUNETEENTH, the emancipation of slavery in June 19, 1865. If you know, you know. If you don’t, read our latest article about the history of JUNETEENTH here.
Plus, we attended our first Pride Parade in Philly and found that there “ain’t no party like LGBTQ party ‘cause a LGBTQ party don’t stop!”
