Ken Burns: The Central Park Five

Monday, March 13
6:00pm
Eventbrite - Silicon Valley Reads Film Series: Ken Burns - The Central Park Five

In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white woman in New York City’s Central Park. 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.

Unconscious biases and justice are the topic for the 15th annual Silicon Valley Reads. This popular community program focuses on contemporary themes and offers a wide variety of free events to prompt public engagement in the theme, “…and justice for all.” The films were selected to augment reader’s enjoyment of the selected books: Unfair by Adam Benforado and Writing My Wrongs by Shaka Senghor. Our film festival includes six films chosen to supplement the 2017 theme. See SiliconValleyReads.org for dates and details of the full program.
