The Film

Revolution '67 returns to Newark, New Jersey in the summer of 1967 to reveal the untold story of what happened during the Newark rebellion against racism and brutality against African Americans. Through archival footage and animation we hear from the people who lived it: including activists Amiri Baraka and Tom Hayden, the police, the National Guard, and the media.
