LISC Institute Webinar: Richard Rothstein on the Color of Law


This LISC Institute webinar features a conversation with Richard Rothstein on his book, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America. The Color of Law, published in 2017, documents how local, state, and federal government created and reinforced the racial segregation of American cities from San Francisco to Boston, including many neighborhoods where community development efforts have focused.

During the webinar, Mr. Rothstein presents the book’s major themes, and then takes questions from the audience. Anyone interested in learning more about the history of redlining in the United States, and the ongoing effects of the practice, should watch the recording.
