Central Park Five in the Schenectady Gazette

Sara Foss of the Gazette writes an article in conjunction with tomorrow's UAlbany screening of Ken Burns' Central Park Five, followed by a Q&A with co-directors Sarah Burns and David McMahon.

"Sarah Burns learned about the case in 2003 while working as an intern for Jonathan Moore, one of the attorneys representing the five young men wrongfully convicted of the jogger’s rape and assault. Burns wrote her undergraduate thesis on the case, and followed it with a book titled “The Central Park Five: A Chronicle of a City Wilding.” But the project wasn’t over....  “I couldn’t let go of this story,” Burns said. “I was so curious about it.”
