Agreements Reached Between Community and Government Negotiators Regarding UMDNJ and Related Matters (As Amended)- April 30, 1968-ilovepdf-compressed

The infamous “Medical School Agreement” reached between representatives of Newark’s Black and Puerto Rican communities and government officials regarding the proposed College of Medicine and Dentistry in the city’s Central Ward. The Newark Area Planning Association (NAPA) and the Committee Against Negro and Puerto Rican Removal represented the city’s poor Black and Puerto Rican communities and led the charge to develop an alternate plan for the College of Medicine and Dentistry that would have originally displaced approximately 20,000 Black and Puerto Rican residents of the Central Ward. — Credit: Junius Williams Collection
