The panelists discussed the book, No Cause for Indictment: The Explosive Story of the Newark Riots, re-released this year by Melville House Publishing to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1967 Newark riots. The author of the book, Ronald Porambo, was a former print journalist in New York and New Jersey. He died in 2006 while serving a 30-year sentence for murder in the New Jersey State Prison system.
Originally published in 1971, the book was the result of a series of articles that ran in The Elizabeth Daily Journal in 1967. Ronald Porambo reported on the riots and examined the alleged corruption within the police force. After the panel discussion, the participants responded to audience members' questions. close
