‘P.O.V.’ documentaries to be screened at library

A program titled “Protest and Rebellion in New Jersey’s Past” is set for 1 p.m. on Oct. 3 and 17 at the Monroe Township Public Library, 4 Municipal Plaza.

A PBS “P.O.V.” (“Point of View”) documentary will be shown at each event. Discussion will follow.

“Revolution ’67” will be screened on Oct. 3. The video recounts the six-day outbreak of violence of the Newark riots. The film reveals how the disturbance began as spontaneous revolts against poverty and police brutality and ended as milestones in America’s struggles over race and eco- nomic justice. Running time is 90 minutes.

“The Camden 28,” planned for Oct. 17, recalls the 1971 raid on a Camden draftboard office by “Catholic Left” activists protesting the Vietnam War and the event’s effects on urban America. The film reveals the stories behind those arrested, including four Catholic priests and Lutheran minister. After 35 years the participants recall their motives and the cost of their activism.
