About the Author

Ronald Porambo lived in Newark and was a journalist at several NYC-area newspapers, including"The Elizabeth Daily Journal" in New Jersey. NO CAUSE FOR INDICTMENT grew out of a series he wrote for this paper, and it took him four years of research to finish the book.

Format: Paperback
Porambo's book, written during the late 1960's and early 1970's, provides a comprehensive account of the social strife of Newark: before, during, and after words. Porambo gives the lions share of his attention to the marginalized black population of the city, offering vivid(at times painful to read) accounts of the squalor and brutality the were forced to endure. While he gives ample attention to the years preceding the riot and to the riot itself, he also dedicates roughly half the book to what happens in the aftermath, leading up to the election of the city's first black mayor and the infamous citywide teachers strike that followed shortly thereafter. He seldom hides his personal views on the matters he describes, often painting his accounts with frustration and rage.

This book should be read by every high school student in Essex County. Many of the problems this book mentions are still alive and well. God bless Porambo for telling the truth and speaking up for all the wrongs and ignorance that has been dealt to the city and residents of the tough spots in Newark.

Informative thru the eyes of this author who in my opinion was somewhat biased.
