SOCInema presents: The Central Park Five

SOCInema presents:
The Central Park Five
Join us for popcorn, pizza and a 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.
