Yesterday I hosted a screening of a documentary on my Newark-based college campus, REVOLUTION 67, a chronicle of what philistines and right-wingers would call 'the Newark Riots' and the more nuanced thinkers might consider an uprising. In any case, the filmmmakers Marylou and Jerome Bongiorno were present and engaged in a provocatice, vital conversation with the audience, mostly NJIT undergraduates. It was delightful to witness the political realizations and aesthetic deliberations gestating in their heads. I think an activist or two might be in the making locally.

If you have a chance to see REVOLUTION 67-- it runs on PBS every so often-- do so.

And remember, somewhere in the land it's time for happy hour...and molotov cockstails. Cheers! J/C
