Book: The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein

“Based on careful analyses of multiple historical documents, Rothstein has presented what I consider to be the most forceful argument ever published on how federal, state and local governments gave rise to and reinforced neighborhood segregation.” – William Julius Wilson, author of The Truly Disadvantaged

Reviewer: Edward J. Doherty, Principal Author and Researcher of ACT Rochester and the Rochester Area Community Foundation's 2017 report 'Hard Facts: Race and Ethnicity in the Nine-County Greater Rochester Area'

Special Event presented in collaboration with Central’s Local History & Geneaology Divison
