A True Series based on an incident in 1989 known as the Central Park Five case. A Series split into four-episode each an

hour an half long. Five Black teenagers Kevin Richardson, Antron McCray, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, and Korey Wise are wrongly accused of rape and end up in prison for a long time until the main accuses confesses of his crime and then years later they are free.

This series highlights the facts on the racism against black during the eighties and nineties. The struggle of life in prison and the reactions of the family on their kids even though they admit they were innocent, Yet they find it hard to believe. The series highlights the dirty politics in order to win cases and falsely tricking the accused into admitting their guilt.

There is also an hour-long special with Oprah Winfrey with the “Real” five accused. Oprah Winfrey is the producer along with Robert Di Nero.

Made In America by Bill Bryson-Book Review

 

Made In America by Bill Bryson.

Bill Bryson is an author, I discovered accidentally while reading “Neither here Nor there “a book on his travel journeys around Europe a couple of years ago. Then read “Down Under “- A book on Australia. Though he is better known for his book “A Walk in the woods” The author’s book that I haven’t read is about A Journey the authors goes through wanting to find peace and rediscover himself. By going on a trekking trail with his friend Stephan Katz.

And after nearly two years I read another book written by Bill Bryson

“Made In America” A book that fascinated me as soon as I had undertaken the journey of neither being here nor there. But, being a very heavy book with a lot to grasp it needed a lot of time. And what perfect time than now to have read this book.

“Made In America “who should read this book & why?

Made in America is about this whole new world discovered and how did it come to be called America. It’s for someone who likes to know about history, The past of America and the future of where it is going.

You need to read the book to know how English as a language was altered to have suited the American.

You need to read to understand again and again America is a land built with immigrates who have migrated from centuries ago and is the land of just a small population of natives.

How the modern-day luxuries- The Escalators, The Automobiles, The Restaurants, Ice cream, Chocolates, Whisky’s and Air conditioner’s had come to existence in this world.

Yes, It’s perfect to call them luxuries today with the pandemic making us aware of what privileged life we live as a human. And how well the Americans have marketed, Branded and Advertised things that were invented in The United States of America and Things that weren’t but made the people believe they were the ones who had thought about it.

The Made in America book takes you on a journey about Americans with a perceptive from an American’s Eye and questions you America you thought it was or it is.
