Event to Examine Race, Racism and Public Policy
"The Color of Law," by Tri-C’s Stand for Racial Justice, examines forces behind segregation
Consider how government policies created and reinforced racial segregation in American during a virtual discussion hosted by Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) and its Stand for Racial Justice alliance.
The free program — “The Color of Law: Race, Racism and Public Policy in America” — will take place via livestream from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20.
The conversation will be led by historian and best-selling author Richard Rothstein. His acclaimed 2017 book The Color of Law examines how our turbulent history of segregation is a byproduct of federal, state and local government actions.
Rothstein has authored many articles and books on race and education in his career. He is a distinguished fellow of the Economic Policy Institute and a senior fellow emeritus at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
His presentation during the virtual event will be followed by a Q&A session with the online audience.
