Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Event

Webinar: A Conversation with Richard Rothstein

Wednesday, November 2

10:00 AM - 11:00 AM


The ARA Diversity Council is excited to host a candid conversation with Richard Rothstein, renowned author of THE COLOR OF LAW: A Forgotten History of How Our Government Segregated America on Wednesday, November 2, 2022 at 10:00 am.

ARA’s own Dr. Lee Davenport will host a virtual discussion with Mr. Rothstein about his eye-opening bestseller that describes 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 level. Rothstein demonstrates how the government and our courts - despite the Fair Housing Act in 1968 - upheld racist policies to maintain the separation of whites and blacks.
