20% Discount: “The Color of Law” – How Government Segregated America

Date:

“The Color of Law” by Richard Rothstein is a groundbreaking book that sheds light on the little-known history of government-sponsored segregation in America. In this eye-opening work, Rothstein shows how federal, state, and local policies worked together to create the racial divides that still exist in our society today.

The book’s title, “The Color of Law,” refers to the fact that many of the policies and practices that enforced segregation were, in fact, created and enforced by the government. From redlining to restrictive covenants to public housing policies that relegated African Americans to overcrowded and under-resourced public housing projects, Rothstein shows how government actions played a central role in creating and enforcing residential segregation.

One of the things that makes “The Color of Law” so powerful is the way Rothstein connects these policies to the ongoing struggles for racial justice in America. He shows how the legacy of these policies still affects us today, from the racial wealth gap to the unequal distribution of public services. By exposing the truth about our past, Rothstein gives us the tools we need to begin to address these issues and create a more just society.

“The Color of Law” is also beautifully written, with clear and engaging prose that makes it easy to understand complex policy issues. Rothstein brings the history of segregation to life, making readers feel like they’re right there in the midst of the struggle for racial justice.
