The Central Park Five, from award-winning filmmaker Ken Burns, is the story of five African American and Latino teenage boys who were wrongly convicted of a heinous crime committed in New York City’s Central Park in 1989. The film chronicles the teenagers' more than decade-long pursuit of exoneration and justice. It also elevates important questions around race and class and our criminal justice system.
