Critically-acclaimed miniseries When They See Us has reportedly been streamed by more than 23 million Netflix accounts worldwide. 

Director and co-writer Ava DuVernay tweeted the news yesterday morning after the streaming giant shared the viewing figures with her. 

“Imagine believing the world doesn’t care about real stories of black people. It always made me sad,” she wrote.

“When Netflix just shared with me that 23M+ accounts worldwide have watched #WhenTheySeeUs, I cried. Our stories matter and can move across the globe. A new truth for a new day.”

The four-episode series, which launched in its entirety on May 31st, explores the story of The Central Park Five, a group of young black and latino teenagers who wrongfully convicted of the brutal attack on a jogger in 1989.
