We Are The Exonerated 5

 

I am Yusef Salaam I was Falsely Accused  when I was 15

I am Kevin Richardson I was Falsely Accused when I was 14

I am Antron McCray  I was Falsely Accused  when I was 15

I am Raymond Santana I was Falsely Accused when I was 14

I am Korey Wise I was Falsely Accused when I was 16

We were just baby boys 

But were mistaken as toys

 

Treated as toys. 

Pressured to speak

With nothing to eat 

They thought they could break us

They wanted to think we were telling the truth

They knew what they were doing

But we knew about our truth

 

I am Yusef Salaam I was exonerated  when I was 27

I am Kevin Richardson I was exonerated when I was 26

I am Antron McCray  I was exonerated  when I was 27

I am Raymond Santana I was exonerated when I was 26

I am Korey Wise I was exonerated when I was  29

  • I Wanted To Love You

    I wanted to love you, even though we never got the chance to explore what could have been. Every time we talked, I felt a spark, a hint of something more that perhaps existed only in my imagination.

  • Home

    Every week, I look forward to Sundays with my mom. My mom is a beautiful woman. She never wears designer clothes but she wears leggings, T-shirts, and sweatpants. She smells like the Thank You Next perfume by Arianna Grande.

  • My Name

    My name is LerDer Star.

    My father chose my name for me 

    even though me and my father 

    We're never close

    I always needed a better relationship.
