We value our interpreters taking the
We value our interpreters taking the time to unpack and reflect on racism. You will watch the Netflix limited series “When They See Us”, part of the Black Lives Matter Collection (rated TV-MA for nudity, language, smoking). This limited series is based on a true story of five teenagers of color being falsely accused of a brutal attack in Central Park. They became known as “The Central Park Five”: Kevin Richardson (14), Raymond Santana (14), Antron McCray (15), Yusef Salaam (15), and Korey Wise (16). You will write a 3-page minimum paper. Questions are provided.
We hope you find the time you invest in this Independent Study to be beneficial to your growth and working within the community.
1) Identify the injustice that “The Central Park Five” experienced and list ways that it impacted their lives.
2) Dissect the racism prevalent in the justice system and the impacts it has on citizens of color.
3) Assess my current bias and reflect on the impact I have on systemic racism. Experiment with ways I can support the communities of color towards ending systemic racism.
