DC's own Kramerbooks will be on-site selling copies of "The Lines Between Us: Two Families and a Quest to Cross Baltimore's Racial Divide" by Lawrence Lanahan.

Segregation continues to divide American neighborhoods and public schools. School desegregation plans have been dismantled, and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development recently moved to weaken the Disparate Impact standard, one of the most powerful legal tools available to counter residential segregation and other forms of discrimination.

On September 19, join the Poverty & Race Research Action Council (PRRAC) and National Coalition on School Diversity (NCSD) for a powerful conversation about what divides Americans and what can bring them together. Who gets to live where? Who goes to school with whom? Will our government push us apart or pull us together?

Our panelists are:

Moderated by J. Brian Charles, a freelance reporter who co-authored Governing’s comprehensive “Segregated in the Heartland” series.
