An Evening with Dr. Yusef Salaam


On April 19, 1989, Yusef Salaam was just 15 years old when his life was upended and changed forever. Salaam, along with four others, was tried and convicted of a brutal crime. These young men became known collectively as “The Central Park Five.” Due to new evidence, their wrongful convictions were vacated in 2002 after spending between 7 and 13 years of their lives behind bars.

Dr. Salaam will share his story and speak for the first 45 minutes and then will allow 30 minutes for a Q&A session. Registration via Eventbrite will be required, as seats are limited in the Bulpitt auditorium.

The link to the Q&A form will be on the Eventbrite invite. Guests may be subject to a security check.
