    In a world where deeply rooted biases and misperceptions easily take hold, life can often feel unnerving—a journey that can change for better or worse in a blink of an eye depending on how we see each other. In 10 Seconds, we see through the eyes of Ray and Jimi, who navigate their young adult worlds and what it means to be young Black men in the city. Ray tells the story of a day that he and Jimi will never forget, sharing not only their perspectives, but also the views of the police they encounter. Learn More
