        Struggle for Justice by ‘Central Park 5’ Culminates in $40 Million Settlement

        Help students understand the case known as the Central Park Five and its consequences with this PBS NewsHour video and educational resource from June 23, 2014. New York City will pay $40 million to five black and Latino men who 25 years ago were wrongly convicted of raping and beating a woman in Central Park. Their conviction was vacated in 2002, but it took until now to close the book on the decade-long civil rights lawsuit.

        For a more in-depth look at the case we suggest the PBS documentary "The Central Park Five" http://www.pbs.org/kenburns/centralparkfive/
