OSSINING, N.Y. -- The Ossining Library will host a screening of "Brothers of the Black List" as part of its Documentary & Discussion Series at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 12.
More than 20 years ago, a woman in upstate New York reports an attempted rape by a young black man who cut his hand during the altercation.
While looking for suspects, police contact officials at nearby SUNY-Oneonta. A school administrator hands over names and residences of 125 black male students. Those students are subsequently tracked down and interrogated under a presumption of guilty until proven innocent.
In "Brothers of the Black List," director Sean Gallagher tracks this story of racism that became the longest litigated civil rights case in American history.
Seating begins at 6:15 p.m. in the Ossining Library’s Budarz Theatre.
The Ossining Library is at 53 Croton Ave.
