From Revolution to Solutions: Informed Cinema and Conversations About Newark

Wednesday, October 16, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

The complex and rich history of Newark is explored through clips from three award-winning documentaries by filmmakers Marylou and Jerome Bongiorno. The films, “Revolution ’67” (about the 1967 Newark Riots/Rebellion), “The Rule” (examining urban school reform using the model of St. Benedict’s Prep), and “Rust” (an investigation of solutions to intergenerational poverty including prisoner reentry) allow a look at the past, present, and future of Newark. Participants will be able to learn about and discuss the opportunities and challenges of urban environments by examining Newark as a microcosm.

This program is funded by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities and has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) and the New Jersey Council for the Humanities (NJCH).
