Color of Law Updated

NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE. Please join the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs for an evening with Richard Rothstein to discuss his best-selling and award winning book The Color of Law. This thoroughly researched and richly documented book traces the history of government policy that created and enforced racial segregation in housing in urban America.

Rothstein’s book is not only a vital history of racial discrimination, but essential to understanding the current housing crisis in the District and the region. The District of Columbia is becoming increasingly racially segregated and decent affordable housing is in short supply. As with the government practices described in Color of Law, the increase in racial housing segregation we face today is the result of deliberate governmental policies and practices. The Washington Lawyers’ Committee works to ensure housing equity and choice.
