You're Invited to a Special Free Screening of "The Central Park Five" at the California African American Museum

CAAM will screen “The Central Park Five” – a new documentary produced, written and directed by Ken Burns, David McMahon and Sarah Burns. This film examines the infamous 1989 NY case of five Black and Latino teens who were wrongfully convicted of raping a white woman in Central Park. After spending years in prison, a serial rapist confessed to the crime, and the wrongfully convicted teens were released. 

A panel discussion will be held with filmmakers Ken Burns, Sarah Burns, David McMahon and the 4 of the young men in the film who were wrongly convicted, Korey Wise, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Kevin                              Richardson.  CAAM is located at 600 State Drive, Exposition Park, 90037.
