Join us as we begin 2020 by viewing and discussing the acclaimed Netflix miniseries When They See Us, which tells the true story of five boys from Harlem accused of a crime they did not commit. We will be watching the four parts of the series over four Second Sunday gatherings together:
Sunday, January 12 4pm (CHANGE!!!!): A member of our group's sorority is going to a 4pm screening of the new movie based on Brian Stevenson's book Just Mercy Sunday, January 12 at Bowtie Harbor 9 cinemas, and she has invited our group to come along. SO, we are going to postpone beginning "When They See Us" for a month to take advantage of this opportunity! If you'd like to go to the movie, meet outside the theater at 3:40pm; you can buy a ticket ahead of time online or at the theater.
Sunday, February 9 3pm: Part One: In the spring of 1989, five boys of color are arrested, interrogated and coerced into confessing to the vicious attack of a woman in Central Park
Sunday, March 8 3pm: Part Two: As the jogger case stirs tensions nationwide, the families of the boys and their lawyers prepare for a bitter legal fight against the city of New York.
Sunday, April 19 3pm (NOTE: This is Third Sunday due to Second Sunday being Easter):The boys struggle with the difficult reality of life behind bars. Years later, Raymond, Antron, Yusef and Kevin return home as men to a changed world.
Sunday, May 17 3pm (NOTE: This is Third Sunday due to Second Sunday being Mother's Day): At age 16, Korey begins a brutal journey through the adult prison system. A shocking turn of events reveals the truth of the crime, long ignored.
