The Central Park Five
Tuesday, March 26th
Join ALSA, SJI, and other members of CLS for a film exploring the intersection of race and law in New York. The Central Park Five is the story of five Black and Latino teenagers falsely accused and wrongfully imprisoned for raping a white woman. This was not 1955 in Mississippi. This was 1989 in Manhattan. We will be joined by the film’s directors as well as one of the exonerated men.
