African Americans demanded "colored police for colored people" for over two centuries. Black Police in America traces the history of African Americans in policing, from the appointment of the first "free men of color" as slave patrollers in 19th-century New Orleans to the advent of black police chiefs in urban centers--and explains the impact of black police officers on race relations, law enforcement, and crime.
Klappentext: Using archival sources, newspapers, and personal interviews, Dulaney chronicles the role that black police officers and administrators have played in cities such as New Orleans, Philadelphia, New York, Dallas, and Atlanta. Black Police in America explains the impact of black police officers on race relations, crime, and law enforcement.
