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.
"Abdussabur is a law enforcement officer in Connecticut who has won awards for his work with inner city youth. In 2007 he co-founded Omar Ibn Said Leadership Academy, a private boarding school for boys," the statement said.
A Black Man's Guide To Law Enforcement In America goes behind the Great Blue Wall of law enforcement to provide an insider's view of issues that often arise between police and people of color, the statement said.
