Richmond City Council Chambers 440 Civic Center Plaza Richmond, Ca 94804
The Richmond Museum of History and the Richmond Public Library are proud to present renowned author Richard Rothstein who will be speaking about his recent book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America (Liveright, May 2017).
Although this event is FREE, we respectfully request you RSVP so we can anticipate the crowd size for this event.
In The Color of Law (published by Liveright in May 2017), Richard Rothstein argues with exacting precision and fascinating insight how segregation in America—the incessant kind that continues to dog our major cities and has contributed to so much recent social strife—is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal levels.
