Newark, New Jersey hosted its 11th annual 24 Hours of Peace celebration on September 2-3, 2022. The event was co-hosted by Mayor Ras Baraka and Queen Latifah, with Faith Evans as the headlining act.

“The 24 Hours of Peace event is more than an occasion to enjoy entertainment, food, poetry, and movies,” Baraka stated in an announcement of this year’s event. “It is a time for our residents to unify, to get access to important resources and information, to share ideas and solutions at a town hall meeting, and join together to end violence and move a peaceful Newark forward.”
