A Better Cambridge is thrilled to host this one-of-a-kind Boston-metro community conversation with Richard Rothstein, author of the highly acclaimed book, The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America.
Rothstein's explosive presentation describes the forgotten story of how our federal, state, and local governments explicitly encouraged racial segregation across the country — in blue states, red states and as recently as the 2008 housing crisis. His presentation will be followed by a one-of-a-kind panel disc...ussion with local luminaries and community leaders. The panel with be moderated by The Boston Globe’s Ideas Editor, Dante Ramos, and features:
* Chrystal Kornegay, Executive Director of MassHousing;
* Dr. Atyia Martin, Distinguished Senior Fellow at Northeastern and former Chief Resilience Officer of Boston;
* Bob Terrell, Executive Director of the Fair Housing Center of Greater Boston.
Everyone is welcome at this FREE and open event! Please share and invite others who might be interested.
