Prosecutor Linda Fairstein coerced and convicted five innocent black boys of a crime they did not commit in 1989. The Central Park jogger criminal case involved the assault and rape of a Caucasian woman Trisha Meili, and was one of the most widely publicized cases of the decade. Fairstein accused five boys ranging from ages 14 to 16 of the rape and assault, and abused their legal rights as she manipulated them without the presence of their guardians. Korey Wise, Yusef Salaam, Raymond Santana, Antron McCray and Kevin Richardson were wrongfully convicted in 1989 and served sentences that ranged from 6 to 14 years in the system. Despite a serial rapist confessing to the crime and their records being exonerated, Fairstein still profits off of the promotion and sale of her many books as an author. In Netflix’s recent film When They See Us (2019), Ava DuVernay highlights the lives that were dehumanized for decades because of this woman. We are asking Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Audible and any other outlets that allow this woman to profit through their organizations to remove her books from their platforms. Show consumers of color what our rights and stories mean to you!
