"From Revolution to Solution: Informed Cinema & Conversation About Newark"

In honor of Black History Month, Emmy-nominated, award-winning filmmakers Marylou and Jerome Bongiorno (of Newark) will present a film-lecture titled "From Revolution to Solution: Informed Cinema and Conversation About Newark" on Thursday, February 21 at 6:30 pm in the Community Room of the West Caldwell Public Library, 30 Clinton Road.

This cultural/ educational program will focus on the complex and rich history of Newark, New Jersey's largest city. Clips from three documentaries by the filmmakers will be shown, including: Revolution '67, which explores the the 1967 Newark  Riots/ Rebellion; The Rule, which examines urban school reform using the model of St. Benedict's Prep; and Rust, which investigates solutions to inter-generational poverty including prisoner reentry.  These documentaries allow a look at the past, present and future of Newark and serve as a springboard to a discussion about the opportunities and challenges facing urban environments such as Newark. 

This program, which is free and open to the public, is funded by a grant from the Public Scholars Project of the New Jersey Council for the Humanities. Registration is required and you can sign-up by calling the Library at 973-226-5441 or sign-up online at https://bccls.libcal.com/event/4928478
