Vandalism at the Kawaida Towers Construction Site (Jan 6, 1973)

Vandalism on signs at buildings at the construction site of Kawaida Towers in Newark’s North Ward, reading: “Kawaida Means Trouble”; “We Don’t Want Slums”; “Boot Hill: RIP North Ward.” The multi-family housing project proposed by Amiri Baraka was met with fierce resistance from the North Ward’s predominantly white population and was never completed. — Credit: The Daily Worker
