Brown Lecture: Matthew Horace, The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America's Law Enforcement

Using gut-wrenching reportage, on-the-ground research, and personal accounts garnered from interviews with over 100 police and government officials around the country, Horace presents an insider's examination of police tactics, which he concludes is an "archaic system" built on a "toxic brotherhood" in The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America's Law Enforcement. He dissects some of the nation's most highly publicized police shootings and crimes to explain how these techniques have had detrimental outcomes to the people that they serve. Horace provides fresh analysis on communities experiencing police brutality and disparate imprisonment rates due to racist policing such as Ferguson, New Orleans, Baltimore, and Chicago. 

Matthew Horace and co-author Ron Harris will be in conversation.  

Matthew Horace is a law enforcement and security contributor to CNN and The Wall Street Journal, and an internationally-recognized leadership expert in the field. http://matthewhorace.com/

Ron Harris is a former reporter and editor for the Los Angeles Times and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Currently, he is a professor at Howard University.

The Ivy Bookshop will have copies of the book for sale at a book signing following the program.

The Brown Lecture Series is supported by the Eddie C. and C. Sylvia Brown Family Foundation.
