Summary
"Five African-American men hired by the Indianapolis Police Department in 1876 couldn't know how they would help change the face of policework in the city in decades to come. They were segregated for the next 80 years from their white counterparts and promotions didn't come until 1918, but the men and women wearing the blue persevered. Author Patrick Pearsey has told the stories of heroism and detective skills that have been forgotten until now. Illustrated with never before seen photographs of the men and women who patrolled 'The Avenue', also known as Indiana Avenue, the heart of the African-American community in Indianapolis. Their sacrifices and achievements paved the way for today's officers of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, where anything is possible for minority officers."--Page [4] of cover
