About the Film
Long overshadowed by its close proximity to New York City, the treasures and history of Newark, NJ remained hidden to many until The Once and Future Newark debuted in fall 2006. Part travelogue, part documentary and part history lesson, the film features a group tour hosted by Rutgers History Professor Clement Price, a celebrated scholar of Newark and New Jersey history. The locations included in the film were chosen for their broad cultural, social and historical significance.
Produced by the Rutgers Office of Communications, Newark, and Blackbird Media, State College, PA.
Nominated for the 2007 Mid-Atlantic Emmy, recognized with the 2007 Clarion Award and named 2007 Video of the Year by the Garden State Journalists Association
