Interview with the Central Park Five as Adults

New York Times columnist Jim Dwyer sits down with documentary filmmakers Sarah and Ken Burns, along with the real Central Park Five, then in their 30s, to discuss the arrests, the case, and their incarceration. The interview begins with a rather awkward questioning of why each of the five were in the park that night. Antron McCray talks about staying there as he watched a man get beat, and Yusef Salaam says that they did so out of curiosity because they were children (two were 14, two were 15, and one was 16).
