Black History Month Speaker Series: Yusef Salaam

Dr. Salaam is a member of the Exonerated Five formally known as the Central Park Five.

In 1989, 5 innocent men were tried on a rape case that happened in Central Park. Before they were exonerated, they spent between 7 and 14 years in prison.

Now they are telling their story of injustice. And YOU should be there to hear about it on February 10th in the Student Center Ballroom! Doors open at 6:00pm for this free event, and Yusef Salaam will begin at 7:00pm.

The popular Netflix series “When They See Us” is a dramatization that documents the traumatic events from the case.
