Welcome to The Newarker

Dear Reader,

The Newarker is a quarterly journal of history, culture, and society focused on Newark, New Jersey that celebrates the creativity, diversity and dynamism of this city.

In our debut issue, we surveyed community members on Newark’s police reform efforts, interviewed a local artist/academic, and featured a reflection on the history of the Old Essex County Jail. We also included photographs, short stories, music and more.

The Newarker relies on community contributors. If you have thoughts on what this journal should feature in future issues or want to submit a piece, please reach out.
