Join KQED and Oakland Local for a free screening of the award-winning film The Central Park Five on Thursday, April 4, at Oakland’s Kaiser Auditorium. The new Ken Burns film tells story of the five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem who were wrongly convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park in 1989. And it chronicles, for the first
time, the “Central Park jogger” case from the perspective of the five young men whose lives were upended by this miscarriage of justice. Doors open at 6pm. A panel discussion will follow the film.
