Remember “wilding”? Ken Burns proves it never happened: The police invented the term, the phenomenon, and its alleged history—and sent five innocent kids to jail for gang rape as a result.
On Thursday, December 13, from 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm, KEN BURNS, documentarian extraordinaire (The DUST BOWL, BASEBALL, THE CIVIL WAR), speaks with Mara about his new film, THE CENTRAL PARK FIVE.
The film lays bare the racism, corruption, and media hype that resulted in the conviction of five innocent black and Latino youths for the gang rape of The Central Park Jogger. The boys spent 6 to 13 years in jail— despite inconsistent confessions the film proves were coerced, and DNA evidence that excluded them. Only a serial rapist’s surprise confession set the five free. Raymond Santana, one of the five, also takes part in the interview.
Ken Burns has won over 40 major film and television awards for the series The CIVL WAR, including a Peabody, two Grammys, two Emmys, and the Lincoln Prize.

Supervisor Eric Mar will be our guest on Tenants Rights Radio this week, Thursday, October 11, 4:00 – 5:00 pm. Call in to 415-962-7979
and put your questions directly to Eric!
Whether Eric Mar or David Lee wins the upcoming election will make a difference to all San Franciscans, not just the Richmond! Mar is a crucial vote on needed legislation at the Board of Supervisors.
This race is more important than ever in light of the homophobic ad David Lee’s “Super-PAC” posted on YouTube last week.
For the Triple Bonus Score, the ad appears to unintentionally reveal illegal collaboration.. .
Please note: David Lee was invited to appear with Eric, but while we were working out scheduling, Lee chose to spend his available time elsewhere.
Eric Mar was elected in November 2008 to represent District 1, the Richmond District. For over two decades, Eric has been a dedicated and responsive advocate for working families, youth and seniors, small businesses and all the diverse residents of the Richmond District and San Francisco.
From 2000 to 2008, Eric served as a Commissioner and past President of the San Francisco Board of Education. He led efforts to clean up corruption and financial mismanagement, close the achievement gap, strengthen parental involvement in educational policy-making and increase resources for public education.
This is the toughest race in this election, with speculators/developers/gentrifiers lavishing money on Mar’s opponent, David Lee, to the point that it’s the first time in decades an incumbent could lose. Lee’s YouTube ad cost almost as much on its own as Mar’s entire campaign has raised.
So tune in and get the facts, and how they effect you. Tenants Rights Radio, Thursdays 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm on Radio Valencia.
