The presumption of guilt : the arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. and race, class, and crime in America by Charles J Ogletree ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 605 libraries worldwide
Shortly after noon on Tuesday, July 16, 2009, Henry Louis Gates, Jr., MacArthur Fellow and Harvard professor acclaimed for his work on racial justice, was mistakenly arrested and handcuffed by Cambridge police sergeant James Crowley for attempting to break into his own home. The ensuing media firestorm ignited debate across the country. The Crowley-Gates incident was a clash of absolutes, underscoring the tension between black and white, police and civilians, and the privileged and less privileged in modern America. And when race, class and the law collide, what steps do we take as a society to move from the presumption of guilt to the presumption of innocence? Charles Ogletree, also a Harvard professor, and one of the country's foremost experts on civil rights, uses this incident as a lens through which to explore issues of race, class, and crime, with the goal of creating a more just legal system for all. Working from years of research and based on his own classes and experiences with law enforcement, the author illuminates the steps needed to embark on the long journey toward racial and legal equality for all Americans. -- Provided by publisher.
