The Central Park Five

February 19 @ 8:10 pm - 10:30 pm

The History Club, in conjunction with History 210, and with the co-sponsorship of the Black Student Union, the African American Studies and Social Justice Programs, and the Departments of History and Criminal Justice, is screening the documentary THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE.

Focusing on the wrongful arrests of five black and Latino teenagers, accused of raping a white female jogger in Central Park in 1989, CENTRAL PARK FIVE was co-directed by Sara Burns, David McMahon and Ken Burns and originally released last year.

Any students interested in exploring the complicated recent history of American race relations and the criminal justice system are encouraged to attend.

There will be a talk-back period after the viewing of the film.

The presentation of this film is free and open to the public
