Handbill from the Newark Vietnam Work-In Committee, undated
Identifier: Mss 0113
This single-item collection consists of a handbill from the Newark Vietnam Work-In Committee. The undated handbill was likely printed in the summer of 1967. It is addressed “Dear Friend” and opens with a description of the challenges facing the activists in the Black Liberation movement in Newark. It also contains warnings against potential riots as well as attempts to pit white workers against black workers. The handbill introduces the concept of the Work-In, which was an effort to send radical students into the factories during summer break to mobilize the working class against the Vietnam War. This collection will be of interest to researchers studying the anti-war movement, the labor movement, and the Newark Riots.
