Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay has been behind some of the most prolific films and documentaries of our time. After directing the Oscar-winning Selma, DuVernay joined forces with Netflix for 13th, an in-depth look at racial inequality within the prison system. Netflix has just green lit her next project, Central Park Five.

It’s one of the most heartbreaking stories about the persecution of young black men. The Central Park Five, as they became known, were five young men in their teens wrongly accused of the most heinous act, stripped of their reputation, dignity and freedom without evidence or witnesses. When a white women gets raped in NYC Central Park, the city went on a rampage and they wanted someone to pay.

As DuVernay’s social media post states, one of the most influential people to call for the execution of these innocent young men was Donald Trump. To this day, Trump continues to believe that the 5 young men are guilty, despite the fact that another man confessed and his DNA was found at the scene.

The limited series hasn’t been given a release date but we are excited for Ava to bring this story to life.
