Details

Left Bank Books welcomes internationally-recognized law enforcement and security contributor Matthew Horace, who will sign and discuss his new book, “The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America’s Law Enforcement”!

This event is free and open to the public, but proof of purchase of “The Black and the Blue” from Left Bank Books will be required to enter the signing line.

Matthew Horace was an officer at the federal, state, and local level for 28 years working in every state in the country. Yet it was after seven years of service when Horace found himself face-down on the ground with a gun pointed at his head by a white fellow officer, that he fully understood the racism seething within America’s police departments. Using gut-wrenching reportage, on-the-ground research, and personal accounts, Horace presents an insider’s examination of police tactics, which he concludes is an “archaic system” built on “toxic brotherhood.”
