Matthew Horace - The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America's Law Enforcement — in conversation with Ron Harris

Upcoming Event
Thursday, August 16, 2018 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Seven years into his twenty-eight year career as an officer, Horace found himself face-down on the ground with a white colleague pointing a gun at his head. That moment crystallizes the “toxic brotherhood” and endemic racism Horace examines in this unflinching look at how police interact with Black America. Now a law enforcement and security contributor to CNN and The Wall Street Journal, Horace analyzes highly publicized police shootings in Ferguson, New Orleans, Baltimore, and Chicago, giving a law enforcement perspective on the causes of the violence and tracing each incident’s impact on its community, including looking at imprisonment rates. Horace will be in conversation with Ron Harris, a professor at Howard University and former reporter and editor for The Los Angeles Times and The St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
