Richard Rothstein: The Color of Law

Lecture and book signing

Marin County Board of Supervisors and the Dominican University of California School of Liberal Arts & Education invite you to hear famed author and educator Richard Rothstein speak about his new book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America.

Rothstein is a senior fellow at the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society, located at the University of California at Berkeley. His book outlines how the U.S. government adopted policies in the mid-20th century to segregate white and black residents through federal public housing projects. In The Color of Law, Rothstein writes about how the government can remedy its own injustices.
