One Righteous Man
- Samuel Battle and the Shattering of the Color Line in New York
- By: Arthur Browne
- Narrated by: Dominic Hoffman
- Length: 13 hrs and 2 mins
When Samuel Battle broke the color line as New York City's first African American cop in the second decade of the 20th century, he had to fear his racist colleagues as much as criminals. He had to be three times better than his white peers and many times more resilient. His life was threatened. He was displayed like a circus animal. Yet, fearlessly claiming his rights, he prevailed in a four-decade odyssey.
