From indiewire

Recently nominated for a 2012 IDA Documentary Award for Best Feature and on the roster for the upcoming2012 AFI Film Festival, The Central Park Five is based on Sarah Burns’ best-selling book. In 1989, five black and Latino teens were arrested and charged for brutally raping a white woman in Central Park. After the five had spent years in prison for a crime they didn’t commit, the truth finally came out about what happened that night.

The film will open in New York on November 23.

  1. Every time someone whines about the Duke Lacrosse case I remind them that those boys in New York spent 13 years of their life in prison for NOTHING they get very silent afterwards.

  2. It’s the Scottsboro boys all over again in 1931. And did you know they are just now pardoning them today in 2012, after they are dead and gone? That is just too effed up.

      1. All I can say is that white people have a hard time seeing us as ‘people’. They must not think we’re important enough to take into consideration.
