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.

Dear Friend,Due to blizzard warnings throughout New York and so as not to put you in harm’s way, we’ve decided to postpone the Africa Ignited Party to February 22nd. We apologize for the inconvenience as we know a lot of you were already looking forward to the fantastic time we promised but your safety is our priority. All pre-purchased tickets will still be honored on the new event date.

Please join us on the 22nd, 11:00PM to 4AM. Same iconic location, same awesome line up.
