Cyntoia Brown Speaks to Students of Greenburgh Central School District

Cyntoia Brown recently spoke with students of the Greenburgh Central School District (GCSD).

Brown was convicted of murdering and robbing Johnny Michael Allen, who had bought her for sex. She was sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after 51 years. The governor of Tennessee granted her clemency in 2017, reducing her sentence to 15 years.  Since August, Brown has been free and sharing her story through documentaries and books – and talks with students.
