Date: 10/21/2019
Start Time: 7:00 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein (National Book Award long list, 2017). Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, explodes the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation—individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, Rothstein makes clear that it was de jure segregation—the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments—that promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.
