“The Central Park Five” takes a look at the racially charged 1989 case involving several black and latino teens who were accused of raping a 28 year-old white woman at Central Park in New York.
Directed by Ken Burns, the film reveals how racial injustice and bad police work created hysteria and damaged the lives of young black men. One decade after the convictions, the teens were finally exonerated and the true rapist stepped forward.
