The Color of Law: An evening with author Richard Rothstein

Author Richard Rothstein takes a bold stance on neighborhood segregation in America in his latest book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America (2017). In the book, Rothstein documents how American cities became so racially divided and examines how federal, state, and local governments systematically imposed residential segregation.

Rothstein will discuss the book at a public lecture at The Attucks Theatre in Norfolk at 7 p.m. on April 29. The event is free.
