5 Netflix Shows About Racism- Hey! Holla

1. Explained - The Racial Wealth Gap To help understand the concept of 'white privilege'. Go to season 1 to watch this episode.
    2. 13th Ava DuVernay's documentary takes an in depth look into systemic racism in the US and slavery 2.0 via mass incarceration, affecting black men disproportionately. Powerful, thought provoking, upsetting and infuriating.
      3. Who Killed Malcolm X An insight into Malcolm X, his beliefs and his assassination.
        4. When They see Us Another must-watch by Ava DuVernay, this drama tells the true story of the 'Central Park 5'; a group of black teens wrongfully convicted of raping and killing a white female jogger in Central Park in 1989...and their long journey to prove their innocence.

          5. Time - The Kalief Browder Story Jay-Z's powerful true crime docu-series about a black teen from the Bronx wrongfully accused and charged with stealing a backpack. With no way to pay the bail he was incarcerated at the infamous Rikers Island for 3 years with no conviction while awaiting trial. 

          Kalief endured unspeakable abuse by both inmates and guards during his incarceration, including enduring two years in solitary confinement.

          The sad truth is the majority of black men in Rikers who are awaiting trial are there because their families cannot afford to post bail of just $1000 or less.
