Book Description

Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue, by Eugene Richards, is an in-depth and intimate look at the embattled inhabitants of three representative troubled communities: East New York; North Philadelphia; and the Red Hook Housing Project in Brooklyn, New York. Accompanying the bold photographs are Richards's personal observations and interviews, with additional reporting by Time/Life front-line correspondent Edward Barnes. Interviews with gang members, addicts, dealers, parents, children, the elderly, sex workers, police, and the clergy give voice to the afflicted communities. Richards alerts us to how drugs threaten the very fabric of our society, be it through lives lost to addiction, gang gunfire, AIDS from shared needles, or crime. With a chilling and informative afterword by Dr. Stephen W. Nicholas, who works as a pediatric AIDS physician in Harlem, Cocaine True, Cocaine Blue reveals how first steps toward solutions to overcome the drug trade have actually contributed to public denial and further isolation of the trapped communities.
