TIME: The Kalief Browder Story (2017) Rated TV-MA

Kalief Browder was 16 when he was arrested for stealing a backpack. He spent three years in jail awaiting trial. The case was never prosecuted, and he was released only to commit suicide. Starring Jay-Z, Kalief Browder, and Venida Browder.

This series talks about the challenges of the American liberties that were disputed during Browder’s case. It combines true accounts, archival footage, and recreations of his life. The film claims that he is a hero, but I’m not so sure. I don’t remember hearing much about him prior to this series. The film is brilliantly edited, telling the story of the case against Browder and how he fought the system. They bring you into the emotional journey of this young boy’s life. The story of Browder does need to be told, I just don’t know about attacking the system. The film takes you on a roller coaster of a ride, and that makes it worth the watch.
