Longlisted for the PEN/John Kenneth Galbraith Award for Nonfiction
Career police officer turnedCNN contributor offers a "hard-hitting, convincing indictment of the biases in today''s law enforcement."--Booklist(starred review)
"The hidden dysfunctions in American policing are laid bare in this searching exposé.... Horace and coauthor Harris write sympathetically of the dilemmas of policing, but are uncompromising in their indictment of abuses. Horace''s street cred and hard-won insights make this one of the best treatments yet of police misconduct."--Publishers Weekly(starred review)
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 garnered by interviews with 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 "toxic brotherhood." Horace dissects some of the nation''s most highly publicized police shootings and communities highlighted in the Black Lives Matter movement and beyond to explain how these systems and tactics have had detrimental outcomes to the people they serve. Horace provides fresh analysis on communities experiencing the high killing and imprisonment rates due to racist policing such as Ferguson, New Orleans, Baltimore, and Chicago from a law enforcement point of view and uncovers what has sown the seeds of violence.

Timely and provocative,The Black and The Bluesheds light on what truly goes on behind the blue line.
