Celebrate Newark’s 350th anniversary! NJPAC joins with the Newark History Society for a series of four talks, October through June, to explore Newark’s rich heritage through the achievements of its citizens and bring attention to the city’s continuing growth. Admission is free.
The first, Celebrations in Newark: 1916 to 2016, describes how the festivities of 1916, 1966 – and now 2016 – included rousing displays of civic pride. Walter Chamber, a participant in the planning of the 1966 celebration, moderates a panel of historians who will discuss these past anniversaries and highlights of the upcoming sesquarcentennial.
