Map of Newark Wards (1954)

Map of Newark Wards as approved by Ward Commissioners on January 5, 1954. The original ward lines were re-drawn after African American leaders, including Tim Still and Larry Coggins, protested the boundaries that made Black voters a minority in the Central Ward and fought to have the ward lines changed. -- Credit: Newark Public Library
