Welcome to the inaugural GARB discussion. We will be discussing the book The Color of Law: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America by Richard Rothstein. This text is available through the Grafton Public Library and is also on Audible.
Author Richard Rothstein argues with exacting precision and fascinating insight how segregation in America—the incessant kind that continues to dog our major cities and has contributed to so much recent social strife—is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal levels.
The Color of Law was designated one of ten finalists on the National Book Awards’ long list for the best nonfiction book of 2017.
