Book Discussion | JUST ACTION: How to Challenge Segregation Enacted Under the Color of Law with authors Leah and Richard Rothstein


Location: McCartan Courtroom

On Monday February 26 at 12:30pm in the McCartan Courtroom, the Law School Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion will host a discussion and book signing with Richard and Leah Rothstein, co-authors of the new book "JUST ACTION: How to Challenge Racial Segregation Enacted Under the Color of Law."

Richard Rohtstein is author of the 2017 NY Times Bestseller, "The Color of Law," a book that demolished the de facto segregation myth that Black and White Americans live separately by choice, providing the most forceful argument ever published on how federal, state, and local governments gave rise to and reinforced neighborhood segregation. "JUST ACTION" is the follow-up to "The Color of Law" and is co-authored by housing expert Leah Rothstein. It provides bona fide solutions, based on decades of study and experience, that activists and their supporters can undertake to address historical inequities, and press those in government and the private sector that imposed segregation to finally take responsibility for reversing the harm, creating victories that might finally challenge residential segregation and help remedy a profoundly unconstitutional past.
The Law School has purchased 100 copies of "JUST ACTION" and attendees can reserve a copy upon registration to be picked up and signed at the event on a first come first served basis. Register here.
