The docuseries tells the story of the 22-year-old Bronx native who took his own life six years after being wrongfully jailed at age 16.
The story of Bronx, New York native Kalief Browder is one that leaves the lawmakers who shape our criminal justice system with no choice but to take a closer look at the extreme lack of regard for Black lives in America.
Spearheaded and executive produced by rap mogul and businessman Jay Z, TIME: The Kalief Browder Story gives viewers an in-depth look into the events that led up to Browder’s wrongful arrest at 16, the tumultuous three years he spent at Rikers Island as a result, and the devastating after-effects of the traumatic experience that ultimately caused him to take his life at the age of 22.
