From executive producers Shawn “JAY Z” Carter and Harvey Weinstein, TIME: The Kalief Browder Story is a six-part documentary series about a 16-year-old student from the Bronx who spent three years on Rikers Island without ever being convicted of a crime.
TIME will explore the impact Kalief’s ordeal is having on the criminal justice system and steps that can be taken to advocate on behalf of young men and women of color – and their families – whose lives have been affected by incarceration.
This special screening is the first public showing of Episodes 1 and 2 of the film. It will take place at Kalief Browder’s former school, Bronx Community College, in the landmark Gould Memorial Library.
A discussion with a special guest moderator, the filmmakers and members of the Browder family will be held after the screening.
A candlelight vigil will follow.
