When They See Us: Featuring Dr. Yusef Salaam

Dreams Academy returns with an eye opening, thought provoking event featuring one of this 2019’s most talked about leaders. We will be introducing our young men to the critically acclaimed Netflix Documentary “When They See Us”, which highlights the story of the “Central Park 5”; 5 young black males who were wrongfully accused of brutally raping a white woman, were found guilty, only in turn to be found innocent and released from prison as adults.
