Ken Burns, Raymond Santana

Director Ken Burns gives us his inspiration for his documentary about five black and Latino teenagers that were wrongfully convicted of rape. Talking about the racism Ken added, "There has been progress we have a African-American president, but not enough progress that these then boys, now men didn't get caught and churned up in this system that could not just simply admit a mistake."
