This holiday weekend, there is a powerful film dropping in theaters called “Crown Heights.” It tells the story of a man named Colin Warner, played by Lakeith Stanfield (“Get Out,” “Atlanta”) who was picked up by police out of nowhere, falsely accused and convicted of a murder, and locked up for 21 years. His best friend, however, dedicated his life to helping Colin clear his name.
