Yusef Salaam, a member of the Exonerated Five
(formerly the Central Park Five)

Salaam was one of five teen boys – black and Latino – from Harlem who were incarcerated for raping a white woman in 1989. Now exonerated, Salaam shares his story, which leads to important questions about race and class, the failings of our criminal justice system, legal protections for vulnerable juveniles, and fundamental human rights.
