Unless you've been living under a rock, you're probably aware that the Ava DuVernay-produced series "When They See Us" is making major waves throughout the country. The mini-series based on the infamous Central Park 5 case has been setting Netflix records while illustrating in gut-wrenching detail just how oppressive the justice system can be to people of color, and Black and Brown children in particular.
For our next installment of Reframe: Exploring Pop Culture Through an Intersectional Lens, we will be co-hosting a screening and discussion of the first episode of "When They See Us" with the LO Baha'i Center. This screening and discussion will be held at the Baha'i Center on July 22 from 6:30-9:00. It will be facilitated by me and Reframe co-organizer Molli Mitchell. More details below:
