When Samuel Battle broke the color line as New York City’s first
African American cop in the second decade of the twentieth century, he
had to fear his racist colleagues as much as criminals. Yet, fearlessly
claiming his rights, he prevailed in a four-decade odyssey that is both
the story of one man’s courageous dedication to racial progress and a
harbinger of the divisions between police and the people they serve that
plague twenty-first-century America.
