Newark, NJ, one of the nation’s oldest cities, embodies both the challenges and promise of urban America, nowhere more evident than in its legacy as an (im)migration hub. In spite—perhaps because—of this, residents’ voices often are lost in histories of Newark. We will engage three Newark neighborhoods representing multi-layered trajectories of (im)migrant communities locally and nationally since the 1965 Immigration Act. Combining community-based scholarship and public programming with multimedia publication, we will join local residents to design and conduct neighborhood tours via a Newark History Bus—a school bus retrofitted as a public media lab and media training facility for city residents. Humanities scholars, residents, students, teachers, and media professionals will co-produce a replicable public history resource to undergird sustained learning about (im)migrant histories and conversations about the challenges and opportunities these histories present for cities like Newark.
