One Righteous Man tells the story of Samuel Battle, New York City’s first African American cop in the 2nd decade of the 20th century, and the racism he faced at
the hands of the public and his colleagues alike. Late in his life, Battle commissioned a biography from legendary Harlem Renaissance writer Langston Hughes. Discovering and reading Hughes’ manuscript inspired Browne to complete his own work on Battle.
