‘Cen­tral Park 5’

tell Oprah of pain and re­demp­tion

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - LIFE -

The five men wrongly con­victed of rap­ing a jog­ger in New York’s Cen­tral Park in 1989 said on Sun­day that a new Net­flix Inc se­ries about their case re­vived the pain from their or­deal but, for some, brought a sense of re­demp­tion.

In an in­ter­view with Oprah Win­frey, the men who be­came known as the “Cen­tral Park Five” said they were grate­ful that the four-episode dra­matic se­ries called “When They See Us” hu­man­ised them and used their story to spot­light in­jus­tice.
