Here are some of the events happening this weekend in Cortland County:
SUNY Cortland: “The Art of Criminalization” lecture by Yusef Salaam
Back in 1989, five Black & Latino teenagers were falsely accused of a brutal assault and rape of a woman who was jogging at Central Park in NYC. The convictions were annulled in 2002 with DNA evidence confirming that they did not commit the crime.
One of these boys was Yusef Salaam.
Salaam will be making an appearance tonight in Cortland, as he will be holding a lecture, "The art of criminalization" at SUNY Cortlnand's Old Main Brown Auditorium. The lecture is scheduled to begin at 7:30 p.m. and end at 8:30 p.m.
This lecture is free and open to the public.
