Kalief Browder Way

It was a very emotional and celebratory moment in the Bronx this morning when the corner of 181st and Prospect Avenue was renamed Kalief Browder Way.

What makes the renaming even more special is today would have been his 24th birthday.

Spike TV shared video of the unveiling of Kalief Browder Way. Watch below.



JAY Z and The Weinstein Company produced “Time: The Kalief Browder Story,” is a six-part event series about Kalief, a young student who spent three years on Rikers Island without being convicted of a crime.

After his release from Rikers, Kalief Browder took his own life.
