Richard Rothstein: The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America

Join us for an invigorating lecture and discussion with Mr. Richard Rothstein.

Richard Rothstein, is a research associate of the Economic Policy Institute and a fellow of the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Rothstein is the author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America. The author will provide a national perspective on his previous work that has documented the history of state-sponsored residential segregation, racial inequality and inner city poverty that has disadvantaged and held back generations of African-Americans, even after the Constitution was meant to have repaired these inequalities.
