Missed Opportunities, Shared Responsibilities: Final Report of the Cambridge Review Committee on the Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Incident (ISBN: 9781437935943)
By Chuck Wexler
(Paperback, 60 pages, 2010, $25.00)

On July 16, 2009, Sgt. James Crowley responded to a 911 call about a possible break-in in progress on Ware St. in Cambridge, MA. Crowley, a respected 11-year veteran of the Cambridge police force, arrived at the address, which he later would learn was the home of Harvard Prof. Henry Louis Gates, Jr., one of the most prominent African-American scholars in the U.S.

The situation deteriorated rapidly, according to both men. Within six minutes, Crowley had arrested Gates for disorderly conduct and placed him in handcuffs at his own home. How was this possible?

The Cambridge City Manager requested a study to be conducted to identify those lessons and help other cities avoid such incidents. This report, by the Cambridge Review Committee, is the result. Illustrations.
