The Newark History Society is hosting a program for Mark Krasovic and his recently published book, “The Newark Frontier: Community Action in the Great Society,” on Monday February 6, 2017 at 6:00pm at the New Jersey Historical Society, 52 Park Place in Newark.
Mark will discuss the impact of Great Society programs in Newark. His book, published by University of Chicago Press and based on his PhD dissertation at Yale University, examines how the structures of 1960s liberalism – structures that brought together government officials, academics, and local Newarkers in new and complicated ways – confronted the perceived crisis of America’s cities.
Mark is Interim Director of the Clement A. Price Institute and Assistant Professor at Rutgers Newark.
This program is open to the public at no cost; light refreshments will be available. Please RSVP to NewarkHistorySociety@verizon.net by February 3.
