The Cleveland trial lawyer and author will discuss his latest, Ballots and Bullets: Black Power Politics and Urban Guerilla Warfare in 1968 Cleveland.

James Robenalt is the author of Ballots and Bullets: Black Power Politics and Urban Guerilla Warfare in 1968 Cleveland. On July 23, 1968, police in Cleveland battled with black nationalists in a night of terror that saw 6 people killed and at least 15 wounded. The gun battle touched off days of heavy rioting and was surprising given that Cleveland had just elected Carl Stokes, the first black mayor of a major US city. In the book, Robenalt looks at the roots of the violence and its political aftermath in Cleveland, a uniquely important city in the civil rights movement.

Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Mac's Backs - Books on Coventry.
