TONIGHT. The Trenton Project: Screening and Discussion, Wednesday, April 12, 7 p.m.

The Trenton Project is a collaborative documentary investigation between Princeton University student filmmakers and Trenton residents, institutions and community partners to explore an aspect of city life. This year’s historical approach examines the volatile 1960s and the changes they brought to Trenton. The Trenton Projects looks specifically at the unrest of April 1968 that followed the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the death of one young Trentonian, 19-year old Harlan Joseph, who was shot that night by a police officer.

On April 12th, after the 50 minute screening at the Arts Council of Princeton, the public is invited to join a discussion of the films, April 1968, and community-based research, with several of the student filmmakers and Trentonians who generously agreed to participate in the films.

    • I believe there was an earlier showing of the film at the Mill Hill Playhouse.
