Brothers Junius (left) and Che (right) test out the microphones while dad Junius (below) looks on.

The sons asked their dad about growing up in Newark during the 60′s and 70′s, including his memory of the day Kenneth Gibson was elected as the first African American mayor of Newark, New Jersey. This interview took place at the Urban League of Essex County, one of several outreach partners StoryCorps Griot is working with in Newark.
