Author of The Color of Law, Richard Rothstein, to speak at Creighton March 25

Color of Law coverThe history of state-sponsored residential segregation in America is the topic of a lecture at 7:30 pm, March 25, in the Hixson-Lied auditorium on the Creighton University campus.

The event is free and open to the public. A book signing will take place following the lecture.

Richard Rothstein, the author of The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America, will examine the powerful and disturbing history of residential segregation in America, while providing a national perspective on the history.

Rothstein is recognized as an expert in education and its ties to race and ethnicity, along with policies that have allowed segregation by the government in what he considers an unconstitutional manner.

He is a senior fellow at the University of California, Berkeley School of Law, a research associate of the Economic Policy Institute and a fellow at the Thurgood Marshall Institute of the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.

The event is sponsored by Creighton’s John C. Kenefick Faculty Chair in the Humanities and the Kingfisher Institute for the Liberal Arts and Professions.
