SOLD OUT! The Color of Law with Richard Rothstein

December 7, 2017, 5 to 7 p.m. CST
Metropolitan Planning Council

This event is sold out!

In his groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, explodes the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation. Through extensive research that Ta-Nehisi Coates has lauded as "brilliant" (The Atlantic), Rothstein chronicles an untold story that begins with the Great Migration. Richard will be in conversation with Jennifer White, host of WBEZ's Morning Shift
