Queen Latifah and Newark mayor Ras Baraka will co-host a free event titled “24 Hours of Peace,” taking place from Sept. 2 at 6 p.m. to Sept. 3 at 6 p.m. on Springfield Avenue, from Bergen to Blum streets, in Newark.

Performers will include Faith Evans, Fabolous, CL Smooth and 24 Hours of Peace co-founder Hakim Green on Sept. 2, and Rowdy Rebel, Fivio Foreign, G Herbo and 2Rare on Sept. 3. There will also be local artists on each day, plus retail and food vendors, community resource information, poetry, a town hall meeting and a midnight movie.

“The 24 Hours of Peace event is more than an occasion to enjoy entertainment, food, poetry, and movies,” said Baraka, in a press release. “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.”
