One Woman One Vote 2020 Festival

This event has passed

As part of the Ava DuVernay citywide tribute festival, the 2020 One Woman One Vote Festival in partnership with the Mid-Atlantic Innocence Project will screen the first episode from the 4-part miniseries of “When They See Us” followed by community conversations around the key justice themes of the series.

Based on a true story that gripped the country, “When They See Us” chronicles the notorious case of five teenagers of color, labeled the Central Park Five (now the Exonerated Five), who were convicted of a rape they did not commit. The four part limited series will focus on the five teenagers from Harlem — Antron McCray, Kevin Richardson, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana and Korey Wise. Beginning in the spring of 1989, when the teenagers were first questioned about the incident, the series will span 25 years, highlighting their exoneration in 2002 and the settlement reached with the city of New York in 2014.
