July 19, Tuesday, 7 pm
Movie Night with the Revolution Club: The Central Park Five (2012).Five Black and Latino youths were coerced by the New York City Police Department into confessing to the brutal rape of a white jogger in Central Park in 1989. They were viciously attacked in the media nationwide as a “wolfpack,” and Donald Trump took out a full-page ad calling for their execution. This campaign was an important part of creating an atmosphere that justified mass incarceration. The youths did 7-14 years in prison for a crime they did not commit. This documentary is a must-see in the face of today’s police terror.
