About this Event

-----------------------

In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein, 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 decision passed by local, state, and federal governments – that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.
