The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America

By Richard Rothstein • 2017

In The Color of Law, Richard Rothstein debunks the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through de facto segregation—that is, through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law incontrovertibly makes clear that it was de jure segregation—the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments—that actually promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.

Richard Rothstein is a research associate of the Economic Policy Institute and a Fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. He lives in California, where is a Fellow of the Haas Institute at the University of California–Berkeley.

Sponsored by: The Maryland Equity Project, The College of Education, and The Urban Studies and Planning Program, School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation
