BOOK DISCUSSION -  Sponsored by the Community Initiative for Racial and Social Justice @ Montague Public Library | Rockford | Illinois | United States

BOOK DISCUSSION

Held at the Montague Public Library:  1238 S. Winnebago St, Rockford

Thursday, November 29, 2018 @ 6:00-7:45 pm

Books available at the Rockford Public Library, Barnes and Noble or on Amazon

The Black and the Blue:

A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America’s Law Enforcement

by Matthew Horace

And/or To Protect and ServeHow to Fix America’s Police by Norm Stamper

We will discuss the topic, Criminal Justice, based on these 2 books.

You may choose to read just one of these books and share what you learned with others.

  1. The Black and the Blue: A Cop Reveals the Crimes, Racism, and Injustice in America’s Law Enforcement by Matthew Horace

  2. “This is a must-read… Telling this story demonstrates nothing but raw courage for a black police officer who wants the truth to prevail.” John Lewis

  3. To Protect and Serve: How to Fix America’s Police by Norm Stamper

“The police in America belong to the people—not the other way around. Yet millions of Americans experience their cops as racist, brutal, and trigger-happy: an overly aggressive, militarized enemy of the people. For their part, today’s officers feel they are under siege—misunderstood, unfairly criticized, and scapegoated for society’s ills. Is there a fix?” Former Police Chief Norm Stamper believes there is.”
