The Color of Law: A Forgotten History ofHow Our Government Segregated America Richard Rothstein, an accomplished scholar of education and housing policy and a research associate at the Economic Policy Institute, will discuss how laws and policies at the federal, state and local level have promoted and enforced the residential racial segregation that exists today. Combining legal research and human stories, Richard Rothstein’s book, “The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America,” shows how America’s cities came to be racially divided through de jure (explicit laws enacted by governments), not de facto (individual prejudices, income differences or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies) segregation. Rothstein will demonstrate the impact of this government push for segregation and offer strategies on how to correct these injustices. The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston will be selling Rothstein's book, "The Color of Law," on-site.  About Richard Rothstein Richard Rothstein, an accomplished scholar of education and housing policy and a research associate at the Economic Policy Institute, will discuss how laws and policies at the federal, state and local level have promoted and enforced the residential racial segregation that exists today.
