Diverse Fort Collins Book Group - The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein

About this Event

Join Diverse Fort Collins online as we discuss the book The New York Times called "A powerful and disturbing history of residential segregation in America."

The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein

Details: www.DiverseFortCollins.com/events

In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, explodes the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation—that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation—the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments—that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.
