Richard Rothstein, author and Research Associate at the Economic Policy Institute, will offer insights into how residential segregation in America — the incessant kind that continues to dog our major cities and has contributed to so much ongoing social strife — is the intended result of racially explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal levels.

Rothstein's latest book, "The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America," is scheduled for release May 2017.

He will be joined in conversation with three scholars:

Michael J. Dumas, Assistant Professor, Graduate School of Education, Berkeley

Janelle Scott, Associate Professor, Graduate School of Education, Berkeley

sean reardon, Professor of Poverty and Inequality in Education and Professor (by courtesy) of Sociology, Stanford

This timely event includes opening remarks by GSE Dean Prudence L. Carter, and a book signing with Richard Rothstein immediately afterward. Books will be available for purchase.
