The Central Park Five
Composer: Anthony Davis

Librettist: Richard Wesley
Synopsis

The Central Park Five is an opera that remains talked about today even more than 30 years after the initial events occurred. 

A study by the National Registry of Exonerations found that black people convicted of murder or sexual assault are significantly more likely than their white counterparts to be later found innocent of the crimes. The study reviewed nearly 2,000 exonerations nationwide between 1989 and 2017. Innocent blacks also had to wait disproportionately longer for their names to be cleared than innocent whites.
