Open Communities Alliance, Trinity College, and their partners are honored to present historian Richard Rothstein discussing his groundbreaking new book, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America.
Moderated by Trinity professor, historian, cultural critic, and social theorist of urban America, Professor Davarian L. Baldwin, and featuring the Connecticut research of Professor Jack Dougherty and his students, this event will explore Rothstein's extraordinary revelations about how the laws and policy decisions of local, state and federal governments actually promoted discriminatory housing patterns that continue to this day.
This event is co-sponsored at Trinity by the Center for Urban and Global Studies, Educational Studies, Multicultural Affairs, Public Policy & Law, Sociology, and Professor Davarian Baldwin at Trinity College.
This event includes a light luncheon with audience Q&A to follow the author's discussion!
Space is limited, so please reserve your seat soon!
