Join us for a provocative discussion with prominent scholar Richard Rothstein, whose latest book The Color of Law, exposes how the United States’ vexing history of segregated housing—including in the San Francisco Bay Area—can be traced to explicit government policies at the local, state and federal levels.
The timely book, subtitled “A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America,” comes as communities throughout the Bay Area grapple with a crisis in housing, gentrification, displacement. Rothstein is a research associate at the Economic Policy Institute and a fellow at the Thurgood Marshal Institute.
