Ken Burns's recent documentary The Central Park Five tells the story of five Black and Latino teenagers arrested in 1989 for the brutal rape and assault of a white jogger in New York's Central Park. The teens were widely portrayed in the press as part of a "wolf pack" in the midst of a Central Park "wilding" spree that included vandalism, assault, rape, and attempted murder... My new piece about this important case of injustice, false accusations, and false confessions can be found HERE.
