BERKELEY COLLEGE SCHOOL OF PROFESSIONAL

STUDIES AND NEWARK POLICE DEPARTMENT

PRESENT IN THAT MOMENT  

 

 

June 22

 

The Berkeley College School of Professional Studies and the Newark Police Department are pleased to present In that Moment, a one-act play and group discussion, at the Newark Public Library, Five Washington Street, Fourth Floor Auditorium, Newark, NJ.  The play runs from 3:15 to 5:00 pm.

 

In That Moment concerns the struggles of a young African-American police officer to “do the right thing.”  But, in doing so, a black man is dead and the police officer is being held responsible.  The story is filled with dramatic tension and gives a human face to the complex issues of minorities in policing.

 

The play was created by the collaboration of Ross London, a Berkeley College criminal justice professor, and Jonathan Butler—the star of the show—who currently serves as a police officer with the Hoboken, NJ, Police Department. 

 

Following the performance, a panel of police officers, faculty, and community leaders  will discuss the issues raised during the play. The audience is special too; it comprises Berkeley College students, representatives of the Newark Police Department, and members of the community.

 

Admission is free; however, contributions are accepted.  For more information, visit www.criminaljusticeoutreach.com or contact Ross London at rdl@berkeleycollege.edu.
