Actor Michael B. Jordan recently attended an ACLU event. There he presented the Roger Baldwin Courage award to the “Exonerated Five”.
The “Exonerated Five” consists of members Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise. The five men were unlawfully convicted of a Central Park, NY sexual assault when they were teenagers.
Recently a film, “When They See Us,” based upon their story was released. The response to it has been phenomenal as the project shed light on the collective’s individual stories and how the incident affected their lives.
