Abstract

Newark, New Jersey, a classic neocolonial creation, where a Black United Front of blacks and Puerto Ricans moved through the late sixties to elect Kenneth Gibson black mayor of the first major northeastern city. Now some of the fruits borne of the struggles of the sixties can be tasted in their bitterest aspect. These black faces in high places are simply objective agents of the rule of monopoly capitalism, as cold and as cynical as they have to be, whether in Zaire or Newark.
