Just Economy Session: Richard Rothstein
June 9, 1:00 pm EDT - 2:30 pm EDT
Join us to hear from Richard Rothstein, author of the groundbreaking, “The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America.”
Richard Rothstein is a Distinguished Fellow of the Economic Policy Institute and a Senior Fellow (emeritus) at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
The Color of Law recovers a forgotten history of how federal, state, and local policy explicitly segregated metropolitan areas nationwide, creating racially homogenous neighborhoods in patterns that violate the Constitution and require remediation.
