Special Event: The Color of Law Lecture with Author Richard Rothstein

  • Los Angeles Trade-Tech College - LATTC: Aspen Hall 400 West Washington Boulevard Los Angeles, CA 90015 (map)

From the event description:

“Author Richard Rothstein's The Color of Law instantly became essential reading for understanding how racial segregation characterizes every metropolitan area in the U.S. and bears responsibility for our most serious social and economic problems. Now is your chance to hear firsthand from Rothstein on the history of racially explicit and unconstitutional government policy and the impact on Southern California. SCANPH Board Member and Enterprise Vice President/Southern California Market Leader Jacqueline Waggoner will lead a moderated Q & A following Rothstein's lecture.

This special event, in partnership with Enterprise Community Partners, is connected to the Undesign the Redline programming, an interactive exhibit that uses powerful narratives of people and communities to trace the enormous role that race played in determining where people were allowed to live, and how government policy created segregation and disinvestment in communities that continue to persist to this day. Docent-led tours of the exhibit will be available for attendees of this event. In addition, five lucky attendees will receive a signed copy of the book! Books will also be available for purchase and Rothstein will sign copies
