Book Review: First History Book on Black presidential Appointed U.S. Marshals

Book Review: First History Book on Black presidential Appointed U.S. Marshals
Posted By: Robert Moore on December 20, 2011

Book Review
“A book revealing the poignant contributions, crisis, prestige, and resourcefulness of appointed Black U.S. Marshals in America’s history as never done before…”
---Vandella Brown, contributing writer of Writing and Publishing: The Librarian’s Handbook and author of What Is a Zawadi to We? A poetic story celebrating Kwanzaa and gift giving.

The President’s Men: Black United States Marshals in America explodes with new findings about Black U.S. marshals, whose contributions and achievements were once summarized by only two-and-one-half sentences in the official record book about U.S. Marshals. Presidential approved and appointed; the book explains that they were his men to marshal in law enforcement. The book is a twelve years’ research journey by Robert Moore, author, who became the second African-American from Illinois to be appointed to the position of an U.S. Marshal in 1994 by President Bill Clinton.

Unsettled, enraged, shocked and disappointed by the buried history and ignorance of the role of Black U.S.



Marshals in America’s history, Moore uncovers 222 years of history involving politics, public policy, society, race, and presidents, who appointed Black U.S. marshals.
A compendium of information, narratives, interviews, and research, Moore uses photographs, illustrations, and documentations to detail the life and achievements of forgotten, and yet heroic Black U.S. Marshals. Moore highlights, Frederick Douglass, the first African-American to be appointed an U.S. Marshal, to those appointed later by eight other presidents, such as, Richard Nixon, George H. Bush, or Barack Obama. Key law enforcement agendas related to the marshaling in of reconstruction, integration, and social transitions are described in biographical data about the Black marshals.

A book that fills in what history left out. It gives a clear historical picture of the selection of African-American Marshals by Democrat and Republican Parties’ presidents in the 222-year history of these appointments. A history book for all ages, it may be used by libraries, high schools, colleges--for law enforcement studies, Black History, American History courses, and political science instructions.
