Autumn, The Play Inspired by the Newark NJ Mayors Cory Booker and Sharp James!
SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 2015 EXCLUSIVE: MNN's "The Gist of Freedom" Interviews of Richard Wesley and cast members! Mr. Wesley an Award-winning Playwright and Screenwriter talks about his new play, "Autumn"!
Richard Wesley, whose hits include "Uptown Saturday Night" and "Let's Do It Again" which starred Sidney Poitier and Bill Cosby and "The Mighty Gents" which went to Broadway.
"Autumn," an absorbing new drama by Richard Wesley that probes the fragility of political legacies and human relationships, premieres at Crossroads Theatre Company April 23 through May 3.
"Autumn" is the first full-length stage play, since the premiere of Wesley's acclaimed work, "The Talented Tenth," in 1989, which looked at the lives of a group of Howard University graduates who were part of an emerging Black elite.
“I began thinking that there was a new generation of post-civil rights movement politicians emerging that was very different from the generation that came of age during the civil rights movement,” Wesley said. “There was a group of old-school politicians who found themselves wrapped up in political scandals; and right behind [them] were these younger politicians who were moving up.”
Since 1995, Wesley has been an associate professor of dramatic writing at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, where he served as chair of the Rita and Burton Goldberg Department of Dramatic Writing for eight years. He is a former vice president of the Writers Guild of America, East.
Crossroads Theater Company is located at 7 Livingston Ave., New Brunswick. For tickets, call (732) 545-8100 or purchase online at crossroadstheatrecompany.org.

According to published reports the U.S. Justice Department announced a federal monitor will watch over the Newark Police Department. The announcement followed the culmination of a three year review of the police department.
The review found several serious problems that were reasonably believed to be a pattern and practice of the department. Among the problems uncovered were violations of citizens Constitutional Rights, thefts by police officers, and excessive force.
Why did so many negative and unlawful department wide practices go undetected and unreported for such a lengthy period of time? Who has been held accountable for the wide spread misconduct? Will effective changes be made to make certain these problems are not repeated?

We will continue our discussion of the U.S. Justice Department's announcement of a federal monitor to watch over the Newark New Jersey Police Department.
The Justice Department's review found several serious problems that were reasonably believed to be a pattern and practice of the department. Among the problems uncovered were violations of citizens Constitutional Rights, thefts by police officers, and excessive force. Additionally the Justice Department report stated, concerns that the NPD's current suicide prevention, policies, practices, and training create an unacceptable suicide risk to future Green Street detainees if not corrected.
Why did so many high salaried members of upper management fail to detect serious misconduct that was a pattern and practice of the department. Who has been held accountable for the wide spread misconduct? Will effective changes be made to make certain these problems are not repeated?

During his childhood he had many aimless passions. But as a young child who faced various hardships and struggles, he always knew that there was more to life. As he became older, he became distracted by the influences of the world and wanting to have an identity in the streets, he found himself in situations perhaps he never imagined.
