Saturday, October 16, 2010 at 2:00 p.m. Justice: A Dialogue Though Film

The movie Revolution ’67 examines the six days in July 1967 when Newark was the site of one of the deadliest racial disturbances per capita in U.S. history. The Newark rebellion is a fateful milestone in America’s continuing struggle over race, economic justice, and corruption, recalling lessons as hard-learned then as they are dangerous to forget today. Archival footage and interviews with participants recreate what happened during those tumultuous times, while commentary by prominent historians places it in the context of twentieth-century urban development and African-American history. Following the screening a discussion will be led by Dr. Leslie Wilson of Montclair University, and filmmakers Jerome Bongiorno and MaryLou Bongiorno.

This screening was made possible by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities, a state partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or the New Jersey Council for the Humanities
