Join us on Monday, October 14 for a talk by Lawrence Lanahan, author of The Lines Between Us: Two Families and a Quest to Cross Baltimore's Racial Divide who will be in conversation with Haas Institute director john a. powell.

Growing out of his public radio series of the same name, this new book looks at segregation and inequality in the Baltimore region from the Fair Housing Act to the death of Freddie Gray and beyond.

In the book Lanahan vividly focuses on the lives of real people in order to expose the structures, policies, and pathologies that perpetuate inequality in housing across America. The Lines Between Us speaks deeply to our current moment—about who gets to live where and how we can live justly together.

Berkeley Law professor and director of the Haas Institute for a Fair and Inclusive Society john a. powell will join Lanahan in conversation. Discussion will be followed by audience Q&A. Books available for sale, and a book signing with the author will follow the talk. Learn more about the book.
