The Color of Law : A Discussion with Author Richard Rothstein

Join us for a historical discussion with "The Color of Law" author Richard Rothstein. "The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America" documents how American cities became racially divided as federal, state and local governments systematically imposed residential segregation using tactics like:
- Undisguised racial zoning
- Public housing that segregated previously mixed communities
- Subsidies for builders to create white-only suburbs

The afternoon event features a presentation by the author, panel discussion with additional community stakeholders,followed by a wine & cheese book-signing reception. For more on this event, click here.

Admission: $25
Ticket & signed book: $50
Sponsorship opportunities available online
