Exonerated Central Park Five survivor Yusef Salaam discusses his new book, "Better, Not Bitter"
Yusef Salaam is an inspirational speaker and prison abolitionist who, at age fifteen, was one of the five teenage boys wrongly convicted and sentenced to prison in the Central Park jogger case. In 1997, he left prison as an adult to a world he didn't fully recognize or understand. In 2002, the sentences for the Central Park Five were overturned, and all Five were exonerated for the crime they didn't commit. He's discussing his new book, "Better, Not Bitter: Living on Purpose in the Pursuit of Racial Justice."
