Race, Politics and Police discussed Feb. 1 at New Haven Public Library
"Race, Politics and Police" will be presented by Shafiq Abdussabur, author of "A Black Man's Guide To Law Enforcement In America," from 6 to 7 p.m. Feb. 1, at the New Haven Public Library, 133 Elm St., according to a statement.
The discussion will be moderated by Paul Bass, publisher of the New Haven Independent, and a reception will follow the presentation. Copies of the book will be available for sale and signing, the statement said.
