Description: 

Screening & discussion of excerpts of the Ken Burns' film The Central Park Five.

The Central Park Five tells the story of the five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem who were wrongly convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park in 1989. The film chronicles the Central Park Jogger case, for the first time from the perspective of the five teenagers whose lives were upended by this miscarriage of justice.

This event is free and open to the public.
