Debut Episode of Black Journal, 1968

July 17, 1967 – Riots in Newark were sparked by the arrest and alleged abuse by police of a black cab driver. The riots continued for five days. National Educational Television (NET) immediately commissioned a documentary that would cover the uprisings and their causes. The production team rented a room in Newark’s Robert Treat Hotel to use as a base for the production and the crew began filming.
