About this Event

A FREE special evening featuring a screening of the animated documentary Segregated By Design, followed by a live conversation between Richard Rothstein (author of The Color of Law) and Mark Lopez (director of Segregated By Design). Other special guests, Dr. Richard Reddick and Sherwynn Patton, will be a part of a panel discussion. Find out more about the process behind making the film, more insight into the problem of residential segregation and first steps for what we can do as citizens. Snacks will be provided by The Vanilla Orchid!

Segregated By Design examines the forgotten history of how our federal, state and local governments unconstitutionally segregated every major metropolitan area in America through law and policy. The film was nominated for Vimeo's "Best of the Year" Award and has been screened at Oscar-Qualifying film festivals such as American Documentary Film Festival in Palm Springs, CA and Encounters Film Festival in the UK.
