Summary Village Voice describes the struggles of Jennie Williams, a New York Police Department administrator who is suing the NYPD for race and sex discrimination. Williams, 52, rose from 911 operator to administrator in One Police Plaza and received three merit pay raises in the first nine years of her career. Now Williams claims that throughout that nine-year period, the NYPD failed to promote her to a position of power because she was a black woman. She also says the department failed to protect her from the racist jokes of her co-workers. (May 28, 1996)
