Richard Rothstein is the author of the New York Times Bestseller The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America. In this interview, Mr. Rothstein describes how our communities continue to be segregated by law due to laws and policies adopted in the early 20th century. He also recommends action at the local level to reverse generational harm. The Color of Law fundamentally changed how housing is discussed in this country and this interview demonstrates why that debate is fundamental to how we live today.
