Fred Means addresses a rally held by the Newark branch of the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) to protest the killing of Lester Long by Newark policeman Henry Martinez in 1965. The shooting of Lester Long was one of the most well-known and contentious cases of alleged police brutality in Newark during the 1960s and reinvigorated community demands for a police review board. -Credit: Jim Lowney, Doug Eldrige Collection
