ATLANTA (FOX 5 Atlanta) - When They See Us" is the new Netflix limited series written and directed by Ava Duvernay.
It tells the true story of The Central Park Five. Five teens who were wrongly convicted of raping a woman in New York's Central Park in 1989.
Two of them, Yusef Salaam and Raymond Santana, joined us on the set of Good Day Atlanta to discuss the renewed interest in the case and their lives today. Salaam and Santana explained how though it may have been tough to revisit the past, it's something that's much-needed today.
Both men have their own successful business ventures and children of their own. Santana has his own clothing line "Park Madison NYC," where his shirts based on the five men have not been able to stay stocked. To purchase a shirt click here.
Yusef Salaam has since published a book "Words of a man," where he says 90 percent of it was written while he was incarcerated. To purchase the book click here.
