    Newark-based photojournalist and filmmaker Akintola Hanif was at WBGO last night to host and discuss his photography exhibition, BT: The Last Days, which documents the drama of Newark's Baxter Terrace housing project throughout the year before it's demolition began. In 2009, the City of Newark began tearing down the development as part of a larger campaign to build better housing. Shot over a period of twelve months, BT: The Last Days is an objective look at the beauty, despair & diversity that existed within one of Newark's most notorious housing projects. There was also a screening of his short film, Blue & Grey, at the reception on September 6, 2012.
