When they see us
We’ve all heard of the story when a jogger in 1989 was assaulted and raped in New York’s Central Park. Resulting in five young people who were subsequently charged with the crime. Who were then labelled as the Central Park Five. They maintained their innocence and spent years fighting the convictions, hoping to be exonerated. This limited series follows the story for a quarter of a century, from when the teens are first questioned about the incident in the spring of 1989, going through their exoneration in 2002 and ultimately the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014.
