Richard Rothestein, author of The Color of Law, will lead a panel discussion to explore the government's role in creating segregated communities, and the public policy positions that are still informed by the mistakes of the past. The author's goal is to initiate informed community conversations that may provide a foundation for better public and private policies. No one should be forced out of their community because of unjust and outdated housing practices.
The Fair Housing Act of 1968 has proven woefully inadequate for many of our residents who face ongoing discrimination. We see it in our neighborhoods. We see it in the massive wealth gap between white and black families. In the U.S., African American families have only 10% of the wealth that white families have. This disparity to due almost entirely to laws that deliberately shut them out of the housing market.
