@ava PLEASE READ-A THREAD❗️Below is a photo from a #CherishTheDay scene. The Author of the book circled is @haveyoureadspud I told his story when I was on the @breakfastclubam @cthagod @angelayee @djenvy I want YOU to know that he wrote 14 books while serving time in prison 1/
2/ Spud served time as a 1st time non-violent offender due to the 90’s crime bill. He saved my life when I was a teenager so I stayed connected with him over the years during his time in prison, he is one of the reasons why I work so hard in politics on criminal justice reform.
3/ Spud is the reason why when I watched #WhenTheySeeUs I was NOT shocked by anything I saw because I already understood the pain & trauma associated with serving time. Because of him I spoke about mental health for inmates during my 2nd appearance on @breakfastclubam

While we should recognize Black History every month I do appreciate the opportunity #BlackHistoryMonth gives us to reflect.

In that spirit each day I’m going to recognize those in the community who have helped me grow & are writing their part (some literally) of our history.
2/1 - @BDTSpelman’s Why Are All the Black Kids Sitting Together in the Cafeteria should be required reading. For everyone.

Her work inspired my advocacy for pediatricians to do more to stop racism at its roots in early childhood. 🙏🏾

2/2 - I thought I was going to have the cool job in the family then my bro went & became a Blackhawk pilot & Captain😎!

@NjoyaChomilo’s service alone is enough but his ability to bring people together & willingness to embrace change have taught me so much🙏🏾🙌🏾

I appreciate those who are sanguine about the #GoldenGlobes shut out of #WhenTheySeeUs. I am not. B/c where we find ourselves in this country in this moment has so much to do w/the willful blindness & disregard for the voices & experiences of those at the bottom.
Those stories tell a truth abt America that is painful but necessary to engage. Their stories implicate us all as citizens of this deeply flawed democracy. They tell of the America that many of us know well but so many more ignore. “We didn’t know,” so many well-meaning ppl say.
We didn’t know about this kind of injustice, about prosecutors & police ofcrs who railroad Black boys & men for crimes they didn’t commit. Abt cruel judges, children placed in adult prisons. #WhenTheySeeUs brings it all into focus. And w/performances that are simply w/o parallel.

Watched the Epstein coverage on my day off w/ #WhenTheySeeUs still in my head. Struck that in the 1980s, prosecutors with 0 evidence put 5 children in prison for 7-13 years for a rape they didn't commit & 20 years later A. Acosta was supposedly helpless vs a serial child rapist?
There really are two Americas: one where the rich can get away with anything-no matter how horrible (and get on the SCOTUS and in the White House even!) and one where those who aren't rich are caged, abused, and have to beg and protest just to have healthcare. May God forgive us.
Oh, and a strip club was making it so rich men could buy some stripper girl caddies at the president of the United States' private golf club that he still makes money from because The Handmaid's Tale is a documentary. #2Americas.…

The interview Michael Smerconish did Saturday of a police officer involved in the Central Park jogger case was irresponsible. The officer made unsubstantiated claims to make it appear that the men exonerated in the #CentralParkFive case are guilty. 1/
@smerconish interviewed Eric Reynolds, a former police officer who at age 29 arrested two of the defendants in 1989. Smerconish asked Reynolds about depictions in #WhenTheySeeUs of police coercing the teenage boys to confess. Reynolds said: “That’s ridiculous.” 2/
Reynolds said they "knew" the boys were involved in the rape after police asked Kevin Richardson how he got scratched. "He then admitted that the female jogger scratched his face. That’s the first we realized that they were involved in the attack” of the jogger. 3/

I watched @ava #whentheyseeus Sunday. My friend #Justice4Jeremy was gunned down Monday evening. Immediately following his murder @ProvoPolice & local media released Jeremy’s criminal history most of which was dismissed with prejudice! They’ve yet to release killers name 1/T
I’ve been told by law enforcement offers to let the @ProvoPolice & @UtahCoAttorneys do their job. If “we” rush them they’ll do a bad job. Meanwhile Jeremy’s neighbor the man who killed him is being treated like a hero. The female aggressor is being protected. #justice4Jeremy 2/T
Meanwhile the story keeps changing. First he was over the woman he was fighting. Now he was kicking her in the head? She was treated for “minor” injuries and released. Who is she? The women we think it is has disappeared from social media. She was a bully. #Justice4jeremy 3/T

(1) I finally got to watch #WhenTheySeeUs, but the news interrupted: a "#terror attack foiled in #TimesSquare." A disturbing headline, but if you look beneath the surface, a very different story emerges, along w/ disturbing parallels to the #CentralPark5…
(2) The first thing that got my attention was prosecutor’s admission that “despite his intentions, he posed no immediate threat.” A man wanted to attack Times Square, but there was no threat? That didn’t make sense. How could such a major attack not be a threat?
(3) Looking at the facts laid out in the criminal complaint, things get a bit clearer. As paragraph 3 says that in "the course of an investigation...[the defendant] bought and received two firearms with obliterated serial numbers from undercover law enforcement officers."

I need to talk about what I just saw. (1/7)
I remember clearly when I first heard about the #CentralParkFive. I was the same age they were. (2/7)
The news coverage of the incident really unsettled me. I remember feeling deeply, viscerally afraid of "superpredators" and worrying that they would show up to go "wilding" in our Ohio town. (3/7)

This Tweet was sent after NYC settled in June 2014. 12 years after the Central Park 5 were exonerated & convictions vacated. In Oct. 2016, one month before he was elected, he still claimed they were guilty. This spiteful man is president. #WhentheySeeUs
Here is Trump calling the Central Park Five “Wilding Thugs” while sharing the insanely racist NY Post *Editorial Board* criticizing NYC for “lavish[ing] taxpayer funds on a group of thugs” after their $40 million settlement in 2014. #WhenTheySeeUs
11 years after the exonerations of the Central Park Five, here’s the current president of the United States responding to some random Twitter account with “Innocent of what-how many people did they mugg?” #WhenTheySeeUs

“You got i.d.?” It can be just that simple. #WhenTheySeeUs
Today, where are every one of the NYPD officers who interrogated those boys? Did they go on to supervise and train other officers? Are they still on the force? Did they retire w/full pensions? #WhenTheySeeUs
At the police station. Hearing a 14 year-old child say to his father, “I got this,” and “I made a deal,” while shackled to a chair. Children. Alone. Under this pressure. #WhenTheySeeUs

Last night I was in the @ApolloTheater for the World Premiere of @WhenTheySeeUs, debuting May 31 on @netflix, introduced by writer, director and producer @ava!! #WhenTheySeeUs
At the @WhenTheySeeUs premiere at the @ApolloTheater last night, @ava brought up the cast. And as a special surprise, @Oprah! Then it was time to watch the first two episodes of the four-part series. #WhenTheySeeUs 2/
I’m blessed to be able to see more productions than most. When I tell you that @WhenTheySeeUs is MUST SEE TV, please believe me. The story of the Central Park 5, or the Exonerated 5 as @ava calls them, is lovingly and hauntingly told. I couldn’t catch my breath. #WhenTheySeeUs

About 13 years ago in Central Park, I was stopped and frisked by the police while on a morning run. They had me up against a tree, claiming that I looked like I was “running from something.” The white officers said that “I didn’t look like a runner.” #WhenTheySeeUs
I began explaining myself, nervous, watching as people ran past me...wondering. Knew that my words, visibility, and “nice” running clothes might not save me. Eventually they let me go. This was all before folks pulled out their phones and taped. #WhenTheySeeUs
3 years ago, I shared this story with President @BarackObama and folks in civil rights, elected leaders, and law enforcement at the White House. The head of the FOP said that all my talk of racial profiling was “new to him.” #WhenTheySeeUs
