Summary "A Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist presents a history of African Americans in New York City from the 1910 to 1960 as told through the life of the city's first black police officer who, fearing his racist colleagues just as much as the criminal element, became an unheralded figure in the fight for civil rights,"--Novelist.
