Called a book “which is factual yet reads like a novel” by the Huffington Post, 12 Angry Men reveals some pointed truths about our nation, as a dozen eloquent authors from across the United States tell their personal stories of being racially profiled.We hear from Joe Morgan, a former Major League Baseball MVP, who was tackled and falsely arrested at the Los Angeles airport; Paul Butler, a federal prosecutor who was detained while walking in his own neighborhood in Washington, D.C.; Kent, a devoted husband and father, hauled into central booking for trespassing and loitering when he visits his mother’s housing project; Solomon Moore, a former criminal justice reporter for the New York Times, detained by the police while on assignment in North Carolina; and King Downing, former head of the ACLU’s racial profiling initiative, who was himself pursued by National Guardsmen after arriving on the red-eye in Boston’s Logan Airport.A narrative of another America for men of color emerges in 12 Angry Men as “a dozen brothers are allowed to give full vent to their feelings about [an] indignity routinely suffered by the majority of African American males” and, in doing so, reveal “a serious impediment to the collective American Dream of a colorblind society” (the nationally syndicated Pittsburgh Urban Media)
