Description

“[Khalil Gibran] Muhammad identifies two different responses to crime among African-Americans in the post–Civil War years, both of which are still with us: in the South, there was vigilantism; in the North, there was an increased police presence. This was not the case when it came to white European-immigrant groups that were also being demonized for supposedly containing large criminal elements.” ―New Yorker Winner of the John Hope Franklin Prize A Moyers & Company Best Book of the Year
