Ava DuVernay is one of Glamour’s 2019 Women of the Year. The online magazine recognized the award-winning director as a “trailblazer.” DuVernay, whose Netflix limited series “When They See Us” told the stories of five Black and Latino men who were wrongly convicted of a brutal crime in New York’s Central Park as teenagers, told Glamour that she hopes to “disrupt systems” through her work. “When They See Us” put the spotlight on the Exonerated 5 ― Korey Wise, Kevin Richardson, Raymond Santana Jr., Yusef Salaam and Antron McCray ― powerfully exposing how institutional injustices and racist sentiments in the public changed the trajectory of their lives. All five served time behind bars.
