In celebration of Newark’s 350th anniversary, the 100 People Foundation has partnered with the PSEG Foundation to create a vibrant portrait of the city and its residents. Through a series of 100 photographs and on-camera interviews with Newarkers, we are celebrating the city’s rich history and culture to mark this major milestone. The 100 people that you will meet in this gallery are all residents of the city of Newark, and together they proportionally represent the city by age, gender, ethnic background, and ward of residence. They were nominated by their neighbors and peers for their outstanding contributions to the community. They appear below in alphabetical order.
