13th Annual ND Reads Community Event
Join us on Tuesday, November 5 for part two of our 13th annual ND Reads event. Author Richard Rothstein will join us for a discussion of his book, The Color of Law.
The Color of Law by Richard Rothstein
In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, explodes the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation―that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation―the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments―that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.
