Long overshadowed by its close proximity to New York City, the treasures and history of Newark, NJ have remained hidden to many of the citizens of New Jersey and the region. A new documentary film, The Once and Future Newark, debuted in the Fall of 2006.

Produced by Rutgers University in Newark, the film features a number of city sites, as a group tour is hosted by Rutgers History Professor Clement Price, a celebrated scholar of Newark and New Jersey history. Part travelogue, part documentary and part history lesson, the film engages viewers' interest for personal exploration and discovery of the city. The locations included in the film were chosen for their broad cultural, social and historical significance. Price's great personal warmth, his affection for the city, and his profound feeling for Newark's fascinating interface of cultures, races and ethnicities, and religions makes this a personal and engaging film.

The film's broadcast premiere took place on New Jersey Network October 4, 2006 at 6:30pm, and also aired on WNET 13 in March 2008.


Runtime: approximately 26 minutes
