My very talented friend Marylou Tibaldo-Bongiorno’s documentary Revolution ’67, about the uprising in Newark in July 1967, will be premiering on PBS as part of their P.O.V. series on Wednesday July 11th at 10pm.
It’s great – so please watch.
From the P.O.V. site for Revolution ’67:
“Revolution ’67” is an illuminating account of events too often relegated to footnotes in U.S. history — the black urban rebellions of the 1960s. Focusing on the six-day Newark, New Jersey, outbreak in mid-July 1967, the film reveals how the disturbance began as spontaneous revolts against poverty and police brutality and ended as fateful milestones in America’s struggles over race and economic justice.
