Be sure to check out Jay Z and Harvey Weinstein’s new documentary “TIME: The Kalief Browder Story.”
Back in 2010, 16 year old Bronx native Kalief Browder was arrested and imprisoned for three at Rikers Island with no conviction, and held in solitary confinement for 880 days.
After he was released in 2013, Jay Z met with Browder, and spoke to him in his Roc Nation office to offer words of encouragement. According to Jay Z, Browder seemed to be doing well and ready to move on with his life. Unfortunately, weeks later, the 22 year old committed suicide, said to be a result of his imprisonment.
