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

A Talk by Richard Rothstein

Richard Rothstein is a senior fellow at the Haas Institute and a research associate at the Economic Policy Institute, where he works on policy issues regarding education and race. He currently researches and writes about the history of the government’s role in the creation of residential segregation. His most recent book is entitled The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America.
