The Terner Center and the Department of City and Regional Planning are hosting a lecture by Richard Rothstein, author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How our Government Segregated America, which has just been nominated for a National Book Award.

The book examines the forgotten history of how federal, state, and local policy explicitly segregated metropolitan areas nationwide, creating racially homogeneous neighborhoods in patterns that violate the Constitution.

The presentation will be followed by a discussion with Terner Center Faculty Director Carol Galante, a question and answer session, and reception.

Richard Rothstein is a research associate of the Economic Policy Institute, a fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, and a Senior Fellow at the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society.
