50TH ANNIVERSARY OF FAIR HOUSING ACT: AN EVENING WITH RICHARD ROTHSTEIN
Thursday, April 19, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 4:00 pm
Richard Rothstein’s The Color of Law: A forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America is an explosive, alarming history that finally confronts how American governments in the twentieth century deliberately imposed residential racial segregation on metropolitan areas nationwide.
In this special Portland program, Rothstein will discuss the findings described in his new book and will hold a post-lecture conversation with local expert Dr. Karen Gibson, author of “Bleeding Albina: A History of Community Disinvestment, 1940–2000.”
“Rothstein is brilliant and has the kind of fine understanding of the machinery of government policy as it relates to housing that I deeply envy.”
—Ta-Nehisi Coates, in The Atlantic
