Clinton Bey Excerpt from Blight Hearings (June 29, 1967)

Excerpt from the stenographic transcript of Clinton Bey’s comments to the Central Planning Board on June 29, 1967 during the “blight hearings.” These public hearings were held to determine if areas in the Central Ward were “blighted” so that the lands could be taken by eminent domain for the construction of the New Jersey College of Medicine and Dentistry. — Credit: Newark Public Library
