‘Central Park Five’ Filmmaker Ken Burns: We’re Not a Post-Racial Society

With Barack Obama being elected for a second term many believe that America is a post-racial society, or on its way.  Others believe that with things like the Jordan Davis shooting still happening we aren’t quite ready to fit that description. One of those who believe we’re not there yet is documentary filmmaker Ken Burns. Burns talks with “Viewpoint” host Eliot Spitzer about his latest film, “The Central Park Five,” which chronicles the conviction of five black and Latino teenagers for the rape and murder of a jogger in Central Park in 1989. The convictions were overturned 13 years later in light of another man’s confession and DNA evidence linking him to the crime.
