 10/30, 3:30pm in HSH 201 


 The Department of Sociology invites you to join Profs. Sternheimer and Kaplan for the viewing and discussion of this riveting documentary.

 In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white women in New York City's Central Park. They spent between 6 and 13 years in prison before a serial rapist confessed that he alone had committed the crime, leading to their convictions being overturned. Set against a backdrop of a decaying city beset by violence and racial tension, The Central Park Five tells the story of that horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice.
