When They See Us reaffirmed my faith that despite the endless stream of content that Netflix pushes out every week, and despite its plans of world domination, it's also, occasionally, doing the Lord's work.
When They See Us is beautifully shattering. By telling the Exonerated Five's story with such honesty and compassion, DuVernay has given us a truth that hurts (as it should) but could also shift the culture. That makes it the pinnacle of art.
