Blood in the Streets : Racism, Riots and Murders in the Heartland of America Daniel L. Baker & Nalls Gwen read online review & book description:

In the midst of a nation suffering through riots and racial stife in the 1965-1975 era, which was one of the most violent periods in urban American history, a racist sniper roamed the streets of Dayton, Ohio. He stalked and killed black men as a vigilante determined to stop federal court-ordered public school desegregation and the mixing of races. During this period, the city endured multiple riots. The story is told via experiences of the authors, one a rookie police officer who became a homicide detective, and the other author who grew up during that period in the segregated city. The story weaves its way through violence and reconciliation of the black and white communities as the city coped with racism, riots and murder. Author Dan Baker served 25 years with the Dayton Police Department. Author Gwen Nalls attended Dayton public schools; and is a licensed attorney in the state of Ohio.
