Please join ULI Atlanta’s Livable Communities Council as we welcome New York Times Bestselling author, Richard Rothstein. His book The Color of Law, examines the powerful and disturbing history of how government deliberately imposed racial segregation on cities nationwide. Rothstein describes how the American government systematically imposed residential segregation: with undisguised racial zoning; public housing that purposefully segregated previously mixed communities; subsidies for builders to create whites-only suburbs; tax exemptions for institutions that enforced segregation; and support for violent resistance to African Americans in white neighborhoods.

Rothstein’s book describes key aspects of development’s ugly past and why we need to take a closer look at policies, practices and regulations that work to counter inequality and ensure we are building inclusive communities that work for everyone
