A Day At The Races - The New Yorker

On June 14, 2015, Hillary Clinton held her first major campaign rally on Roosevelt Island, New York City. At the same time, a few miles north on Randall’s Island, the fastest man on earth, Usain Bolt, competed in the 200 meter at the Diamond League track meet. Although Clinton and Bolt are running different races, the events shared similarities: pageantry, thousands of attendees, and an elite competitor trying to reach the next level of his or her game.

One of the interviews in the collection is with Coyt Jones, grandfather of the current mayor of Newark, Ras Baraka. Theirs is the first in a series of stories we will be telling about families who migrated to Newark; the people who came and stayed.
