Matthew Horace and Ron Harris are the authors of the revealing and important book, The Black and The Blue: A Cop Reveals The Crimes, Racism and Injustice In America’s Law Enforcement.
Horace is a renowned former law enforcement officer who gives a courageous and unfettered account of the living inside the “Blue Line,” what it is like to be “Black In Blue,” shares real-life policing anecdotes while addressing systematic racism inside the profession. . . and offering a blueprint for change. Harris is the award-winning journalist who chronicles this piercing work.
It is an important work in this time of consistent police shootings and brutality of African Americans in general, Black men in particular.
Civil RIghts icon John Lewis said of the book: “This is a must-read for anyone who wants to understand the intersection of race and police brutality in America. Telling this story demonstrates nothing but raw courage for a black police officer who wants the truth to prevail.”
