Forgiveness, a Path to Redemption | Yusef Salaam | TEDxSingSing

06/03/2015 15:56:18

This talk focuses on using forgiveness as a path to redemption, rebuilding relationships and community.

The fifth suspect in the Central Park Jogger case, at 15 years old Yusef Salaam was wrongly accused and convicted of assaulting a female jogger in Central Park. He spent 7 years of a 10-year sentence incarcerated for a crime he did not commit. In 2002, based on a confession and DNA evidence, the Central Park Five convictions were vacated. Today, he is committed to advocating and educating people on the issues of false confessions, human rights violations and criminal justice.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
