On Fri Sept 4, 1992, an elderly woman in a small town in upstate New York reported an attempted rape by a young black man. While looking for suspects, police contacted officials at SUNY Oneonta, a nearby college, and a school administrator reacted by handing over a list of names and residences of 125 black male students. For the next several days, those students are tracked down and interrogated by various police departments under a presumption of guilty until proven innocent.
In “Brothers of the Blacklist,” Director Sean Gallagher tracks this story of racism that became the longest litigated civil rights case in American history.
