As one of the Central Park Five, Dr. Yusef Salaam spent nearly seven years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. His story has re-entered national conversation as Ava DuVernay’s new Netflix miniseries tells the story of this important and controversial case. At this live morning event, Chanda and Yusef sat down to talk about his story, his thoughts about the criminal justice system, and his hopes for the future.
That same evening, we hosted a community event that featured Yusef and a panel of Minnesota’s top law enforcement officials — Attorney General Keith Ellison, Public Safety Commissioner John Harrington, and Minneapolis Police Chief Medaria Arradondo. See the video of this conversation below. You can find more videos from this event on our YouTube page.
