Newark Riots 1967

45 years ago. Converted from a 35mm slide that I took as a passenger in my friend's car the morning after rioting had broken out the night before. It was a very tense situation. I had to hide the camera from the rioters' view.

The NJ Historical Society ran an exhibition about the Newark Riots and the video narration contains this photo and few others that I shot during that turbulent time in the city. Visit the NJ Historical webpage to get more information.

Visit my Flickr set called, BACK IN THE DAY for more riot photos.
