Anti-Racism Discussion Group Tuesday, 9/3/19 6-8pm. Topic: The Central Park Five
The 1989 arrest, interrogation and coerced confessions of 5 teenage boys of color, who were accused of the vicious attack of a woman jogging in Central Park. This and subsequent events are portrayed in the recent Netflix 4 part series “When They See Us” written and directed by Ava DuVernay. If you haven’t seen this, consider spending the time and energy to watch it. On 9/3 we will be viewing Oprah’s Interview of the 5 exonerated men, followed by discussion of the personal cost of the misuse of power in our judicial system. All are welcome.
