Context and a Movie: Ava DuVernay’s "When They See Us"

With the release of Ava DuVernay's Netflix miniseries "When they See Us," Jami Floyd, legal analyst and host of WNYC's All Things Considered, and Natalie Byfield, associate professor in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at St. John's University in Queens and author of Savage Portrayals: Race, Media, and the Central Park Jogger Story (Temple University Press, 2014), talk about how the media narrative around race has changed (or not) in the thirty years since the Central Park Jogger case. Listening to @BrianLehrer and two incredible guest speakers talk about the wrongful conviction of these 5 children in the #CentralPark jogger case.... #America has work to do. Thank you to @ava for reminding the world @WhenTheySeeUs — Alice Tomdio (@alicetomdio) June 7, 2019
