Event Address: 101 Auburn Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, GA, USA
The Auburn Avenue Research Library will host Author Richard Rothstein for a lecture and discussion on his publication, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Or Government Segregated America.
In The Color of Law, Rothstein argues, with exacting precision and fascinating insight, how segregation in America—the incessant kind that continues to dog our major cities and has contributed to so much recent social strife—is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal levels.
Richard Rothstein is a research associate of the Economic Policy Institute and a Fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. He lives in California, where he is a Fellow of the Haas Institute at the University of California–Berkeley.
