The Racial Justice Dialogue Committee and the Social Justice Ministry will co-sponsor the miniseries, “When They See Us,” beginning on September 5 and continuing for four consecutive Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm in the Parish House. A fifth evening will include a viewing of a companion special, titled “Oprah Winfrey Presents When They See Us Now,” in which the cast, the creator, and the exonerated five are interviewed. The 2019 American miniseries created, co-written, and directed by Ava DuVernay for Netflix, is based on events of the 1989 Central Park jogger case. The miniseries explores the lives and families of the five male suspects who were prosecuted on charges related to the rape and assault of a woman in Central Park, New York City. A speaker from the Harlem Justice Center will offer ideas for a call to action for the Episcopal Diocese of New York and St. Michael’s Church.
