A year after the release of her powerful Netflix miniseries When They See Us, filmmaker Ava DuVernay is dedicated to continue sharing the heartbreaking story of the Central Park Five with the world. A brand new initiative launched by her multi-platform media company and arts collective ARRAY will use the Emmy-winning project as a tool for furthering social justice.

ARRAY 101 is a new online education initiative that shares dynamic social impact learning guides for the company’s films and television series with students all over the world free of charge. Described as supplemental learning materials for teaching students grade nine and above, the learning companions will be a resource to anyone looking to expand their knowledge of social justice and advocacy.
